The Effect of Dissolved Salt on the Boiling Point of Water
Explore the properties of solutions with a lab activity. Chemistry fans determine the boiling point of water, add salt to create a solution, and then repeat the process four more times. They design their own data table and then graph the results to show how the addition of salt affects the boiling point temperature. This is suitable for junior high physical science classes as well as beginning high school chemists. Notes for setting up the lab are also included.
