Is rain salty?
No, Rain is not salty.
Apology: Sorry couldn't find a description or paragraph to help you inderstand. We need proof not stupid things.
Fresh water and marine or seawater are differentiated primarily by the amount of salt they contain (fresh water has almost no salt, sea water has about 3.5% salt by weight) and where you find them. To identify marine or sea water there is only one criteria, it is found in the oceans or salt seas. This differentiation is essential as the Black Sea is a freshwater sea. The fact that it is salty is shared…
The oceans are now "meant" to be salty they just are salty. The reason is that when rain falls on the land it disolves some of the chemicals in the soil and the rocks, water then flows into rivers and eventually the seas and the oceans, still catrrying its loads of dissolved chemicals which tend to be nitrates and chlorides because both are soluable, the nirtates get used up by marine vegetation but the chlorides…
The oceans and seas have been salty for a very long time. As soon as rain began, it would rain on land and the water would dissolve salt from the earth which would run back to the sea. Then sea water would evaporate leaving the salt, and creating more rain. This process repeated itself over eons of time, making the oceans salty. Hydrothermal vents and volcanoes below the surface of the ocean also contribute salt.
No, they havn't always been salty. The sea gets salty because when rain falls on the land it gets absorbed into the soil. It keeps going until it enters a stream or river. On its journey to the river or even in the river on the journey to the sea, it collects minerals, one of those is salt! So, before it had ever rained, you could actually drink the sea!
No, the word 'salty' is an adjective, a word that describes a noun (a salty pretzel, a salty marsh). A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun in a sentence; for example: Would you like a salty pretzel? It is very salty. (The pronoun 'it' takes the place of the noun 'pretzel' in the second sentence.)
All water, even rain water, contains dissolved chemicals which scientists call "salts." But not all water tastes salty. Water is fresh or salty according to individual judgment, and in making this decision man is more convinced by his sense of taste than by a laboratory test. It is one's taste buds that accept one water and reject another.
