What is the freezing point of fresh water?
Does salt water have a higher freezing point than fresh water?
What are the effects of impurities in boiling and freezing point?
Answer Impurities tend to increase the boiling point and lower the freezing point. in a way boiling point of salty water > boiling point of fresh water freezing properties of salty water < freezing properties of fresh water melting properties of salty water < melting properties of fresh water .Salt water, contains NaCl, which ionizes into Na and Cl ions. when ions are added to a solvent, such as water, they tend to increase the boiling point and lower the melting point.
