I assume you mean sodium chloride salt (NaCl). In that case, you would refer to the solubility of sodium chloride in water which is 35.7 grams per 100 mL of water at 0� C. However, this amount will be increased to approximately 39 g/100mL if the water is brought to boiling. If the solution is pressurized then the water may reach temperatures far above its boiling point and conversely the amount of NaCl which can be dissolved would increase far beyond its standard pressure and temperature saturation point. Salts are an ionic compounds that more specifically dissociate in water rather than dissolve. Sodium chloride forms a sodium cation (Na+) and the chlorine anion (Cl-) when it dissociates in water.

this is for science test corrections, i couldn't find it. well it actually depends what kind of salt you are gonna use to find out till when it will saturate

Salt in water saturates so quickly because the water is so ful of the salt that has already dissolved, that the water can't let the salt dissolve any more. That's why it saturates so fast.

If you drink too much salt water, you become dehydrated and could eventually die from severe dehydration.

Well that depends on how much salt and how much water you have and what you want to accomplish by mixing them.

How much salt is in 1kg of water

To much salt water can in fact kill you. Not to mention the pollution

I guess it could make you sick. It can't do much, but the salt isn't good for your liver or your heart. So you could get liver failure if you drank a ton of the salt water.

it depends where the salt water is coming from

It means that the water already absorbed as much salt as it could and can't fit anymore so the extra salt just sinks.

there is no salt water in the candy "salt water taffy." it is just the name/brand.

Pure and dried salt has no water.

Because the water in the ocean is salt water. If you have too much salt, it can be poisonous, and with salt water it's pure salt. Also the fact that you need other foods in order to survive.

You could evaporate the water, leaving the salt behind.

This depends on the concentration of this salt water.

If the salt in salt water decreased, salt water fish could not live in that water

i think by distillation..we can get pure water and salt

No, never. Salt helps to sterilise the wound, although it could be painful!

You cannot solidify water using salt. As you add salt to water, the concentration in the water increases until the water is saturate. After that any more salt you add will simply not dissolve. It is possible to create a supersaturated solution by adding the salt to warm water and then cooling it. Disturbing the water will cause some salt to precipitate and sink the to bottom. You can, however, solidify water using sodium acetate. First you add enough sodium acetate to hot water that the concentration is greater than 1.2 g/ml. Then allow the solution to cool. After it is cooled, drop in a single grain of sodium acetate.

Salt and water form a solution of salt water, unless there is too much salt to completely dissolve in the water. In that case, it will be a mixture of salt and salt water.

Depending on how much salt you add to the water and how warm the water is... the salt will disolve

Just water. Actually, there are lots of things that could have a pH of 7, not just water. For example, salt water could have a pH of 7 depending upon what kinds of salts and how much of each kind of salt was in the water.

About 97% of the water on Earth is salt water.

No, but a hotplate can. Hope I could help. =)

evaporating the water... the salt will be left it can not do it

Evaporate water, then the salt would be separated.
