What is the effect of salt on the boiling temperature of water? Many people know the boiling temperature of water is 100 degrees. What if the boiling temperature can be increased by adding salt well it can. This experiment was a success. My hypothesis tested true my hypothesis states that the salt will increase the boiling temperature of water because different elements have different effects on each other. So I think the salt will increase the boiling temperature of water. The temperature of boiling water is 212.9 Fahrenheit. When 1 tablespoon of salt was added the temperature bubbled, showing instant reaction to the salt and the temperature rose to 215.6 but the bubbling water stopped bubbling and in exactly 7 seconds began to re -bubble again. I added another tablespoon of salt the boiling distilled water bubbled up again the same as the first test the only difference is the temperature of the boiling temperature of water was 218.3. The interesting result is the heat from the stove results in the temperature shown on the thermometer because the heat caused from the stove is vigorously high in temperature. What I really did is step 1 heat a stove with a 2 quart cooking pot with distilled water step 2 wait for the water to start boiling step 3 place 1 tablespoon of salt in the water and place the thermometer in the water and record any data step 4 repeat step 3 after adding another tablespoon of salt compare your two observations and temperatures. This experiment can be used in real world situation with cooking because something requiring water being boiled to cook it can be cooked two times faster because of the salt increasing the boiling temperature. This leads me to conclude that my hypothesis stated was correct the salt will increase the boiling temperature of distilled water and also another element can cause change to certain point in elements features.
