How Does Salt Melt Ice?: Salt melts ice by lowering the freezing point of the water around the ice. The ice melts and is unable to re-freeze except at a much lower temperature.
In this melting ice science experiment, make a colorful ice sculpture while learning about freezing point depression and erosion.
Adding salt to ice doesn't just melt it. It also makes it colder because of freezing point depression.
Why doesn't vodka freeze when you put it in the freezer? The answer relates to the chemical composition of vodka and freezing point depression.
The rate at which icecubes melt depends on where there are and the temperature of their environment.
