Does ice melt faster in saltwater?

Answer No. In fact, adding salt to water initiates a decrease in the water's temperature. This result causes submerged ice to melt at a slower rate because of the reduced amount of heat within the solutio... Read More »

Top Q&A For: Does ice melt faster in saltwater

Will an ice cube melt faster in freshwater or saltwater?

An ice cube will melt more easily in saltwater than freshwater. The addition of sodium chloride (salt) changes the chemical constitution of water and lowers its freezing/melting point to below 32 d... Read More »

Does iron corrode faster in saltwater?
