How does adding salt to water affect the boiling point and melting point?

... gives higher boiling and lower melting point.


How does salt affect the freezing rate of water?

Adding impurities to a compound generally lowers the melting point. Therefore, adding salt (an impurity) to water will lower its melting point to below OoC. Since melting and freezing points are identical, we expect water to freeze at a lower temperature. This is why salt is used in the winter on ice, if temperatures aren't too low, the salt will actually lower the melting point of the ice enough that it will melt, even at temperatures below zero.


Why does the boiling point of water change when salt is added?

By adding salt it means that you are adding an impurity into the water. Impurities can lower the boiling point, while increasing its melting point.


Why does sugar have a lower melting point than salt?

Sugar, or sucrose, is an organic molecule and has covalent bonding. Salt has ionic bonds. Covalent bonds are easier to separate when adding energy to them than ionic bonds are, which translates to lower melting and boiling points.


Do nonmetals have higher melting points or lower boiling points?

Why sodium chloride solution is used to clear snow from roads?

Solvents lower the melting point of ice. So adding common salt - as grit or a solution - to snow means that it will melt at a lower temperature.


Which has a lower melting points than ionic solids?
