Q:- Why the salt is added in water while boiling grams?
Ans:- If you know that salt helps in increase of boiling point of water and if you further know that more boiling point means, easier to cook the food, then you can guess the answer.
That is by addition of salt the boiling point of water gets raised which helps in cooking.
Q:-Why is the boiling point of sea water more than that of pure water?
Ans:- As already discussed in last question that salt helps in increase of boiling point of water and Sea water contains lots of salt and other impurities with different boiling points, which raise the boiling point of sea.
