Boiling Point Elevation and Freezing Point Supression

Have you ever wondered why cities in cold climates put salt on the roads to help keep ice from forming? In this chemistry video, Sal explains why the introduction of salt molecules suppresses, or delays, the formation of ice crystals from liquid water. Additionally, he explains how the boiling point of water can be raised by adding certain substances to water. Very interesting!
