Does the temperature of water affect the time it takes a sugar cube to dissolve?
Consequently, how does the temperature of the water affect the time it takes the sugar to dissolve?
Sugar dissolves faster in hot water than it does in cold water because hot water has more energy than cold water. When water is heated, the molecules gain energy and, thus, move faster. As they move faster, they come into contact with the sugar more often, causing it to dissolve faster.
Beside above, does the volume of water affect the time taken to dissolve sugar? When sugar is dissolved in water, the volume does not remain the same. As a soluble material is added to a solvent, it's molecules become surrounded by the solvent molecules and the volume increases slightly.
Also, how long does it take a sugar cube to dissolve in water?
It took the sugar 1min. and 30sec to dissolve in hot water, with occasional stirring. It took 10min. to dissolve in cold water, with occasional stirring.
At what temperature does sugar dissolve?
Answer and Explanation: Sugar dissolves in water at 0 degrees Celsius. This is because sugar is soluble in liquid water at all temperatures at standard pressure.
