I am in the 5th grade and I am doing a science project on "does adding table salt to water make the water boil at a higher temperature" could you give me some information on this? I know I need to measure the boiling water before adding salt and then after and compare. how much water should I use? How long should I boil the water before measuring the temperature? how much salt should I use? I know that water starts to boil when the vapor pressure equals the atmospheric pressure. I think the atmospheric pressure is the pressure of earth and that the vapor pressure is like the bubbles or steam but I'm not real sure. Can you tell me what they mean? what does the atmospheric pressure have to do with the water boiling? Thank you, Minda Dudley
