Boiling Points and Saturation

Summary: Details an experiment investigating how salt affects the poiling point of water. Describes the hypothesis, the materials necessary to complete the experiment and the procedure used to do the investigation.
Student Inquiry Project

I. Introduction:

For my inquiry project, I intend to investigate how does salt affect the boiling point of water? The question came to mind for me, as I watched my mom cook rice. I wondered if Salt, or any added substance would slow or fasten water, when attempting to reach boiling point. To answer my question, I will conduct several trials of an experiment in which I will make different salt concentration solutions and boil them. The solution that reaches boiling point first will determine my answer, after several trials. With my experiment, I hope to prove salt's affect on water.

II. Hypothesis:

If I boil 5 solutions of different salt concentrations, then the solution with the least amount of salt will boil the fastest.

III. Materials:

25 containers of equal size (i.e., single-serve yogurt containers)

Fresh water

2 cups of salt

Thermometer

Stove

Several...
