well for something to freeze it has to be 0 degrees or lower which is what ice is, frozen water. so the water has to be 1 degree or more to NOT freeze so the ice is colder than salt watercoz salt water is not frozen... does t6hat make sense? Actually, salt water CAN be colder than ice because the salt lowers the freezing point of the water.

Is ice water with salt warmer or colder than plain ice water?

it is warmer


Can adding salt to ice water make it colder?

Adding salt to ice water does make it colder. It lowers the freezing point of the water making the mixture colder. The ice will melt more slowly because the water's freezing and melting points have been depressed by the addition of the solvent salt.


Why is salt water with ice colder than normal water with ice?

Because salt lowers the temperature of the water. It's a chemical reaction.


Why does adding salt to ice make ice colder?

Adding salt to ice water does make it colder. It lowers the freezing point of the water making the mixture colder. The ice will melt more slowly because the water's freezing and melting points have been depressed by the addition of the solvent salt. Adding the salt does not by itself lower the temperature of the water, it simply lowers the freezing point of the water.


How can salt make ice colder and melt it?

Because of its chemicalsAnother AnswerSalt does not make ice 'colder'; salt melts ice by reducing its freezing point based on the mixture of salts with the ice/ water.


What causes salt to melt water?

Salt lowers the freezing temperature of water/ice therefore the water/ice needs to be colder then usual to freeze.
