Which melts faster salt water or non salty water?

Salt water freezes at a lower temperature, which is why salt is used to melt road ice. In an environment where the temperature is slowly getting warmer as to melt the ice, frozen salt water will melt quicker than ice.


What melts faster a polar or a non polar covalent bond?

The answer to this is entirely dependent on the substance held together by polar or non-polar covalent bonds. It could go either way.

There are many reasons, the one i can think of is its specific heat constant is different.* * * * *Don't know the true answer but the above is not it.


Non metal that is a liquid at satp?

A non metal that is a liquid at STP is Mercury, with the symbol of Hg. This chemical element melts at 234.32 K and has atomic number of 80.


It what ways are ammonia salt and water alike?

Both ammonia and water exhibit hydrogen bonding. This is an intermolecular force that holds molecules together to increase their melting and boiling points. Water is a small molecule and really should be a gas at room temperature if you compare it to its nearest chemical relative, hydrogen sulfide. Water is not a gas, thank goodness, but a liquid due to hydrogen bonding.Hydrogen bonding is the interaction of a slightly positively charged hydrogen nucleus with a neighboring slightly negatively charged small electronegative atom like nitrogen, oxygen or fluorine.Ammonia, NH3 and water, H2O both have higher melting points due to hydrogen bonding. In chemistry the general rule is the bigger the molecule the higher its melting point.Ammonia melts at -77oC whereas its bigger relative phosphorus trihydride, PH3, melts at a lower temperature of -133oC.Similarly, water melts at 0oC but rotten egg gas, H2S, melts at -82oC.Both ammonia and water owe their unusually high melting and boiling points to hydrogen bonding.Another similarity between them is that both nitrogen and oxygen have electrons in their outer energy level that are not used to make a bond in water and ammonia. These are called lone pairs or non bonding pairs. Oxygen has two non bonding pairs and nitrogen has one non bonding pairs. This makes both water and ammonia attractive to hydrogen ions, H+(also called protons).

Factors that promote rust?

An iron material can easily rust in the presence of air and water. For example if an iron nail is half dipped in water and the rest of the nail is open in the presence of air then the nail can easily rust.


Will salt water boil at a higher temperature than non salty water?

Yes. Adding salt to water elevates the boling point and depresses the freezing point


Does water water evaporate faster in cold non-humid weather or hot non-humiid weather?

The higher the temperature, the quicker the evaporation occurs.
