After conducting the experiment

After conducting the experiment, the results proved that salt does affect the boiling temperature of water. The trend shown in the results of the experiment was that the more salt that was added to the boiling water, the higher the boiling point got. The intention of the experiment was successfully tested and our results supported our hypothesis.We had to wear gloves since the steam from the pot was extremely hot and would burn when it was constantly hitting our hand. We also had to make sure that the stove heat was not hitting the thermometer or else it would have given us an inaccurate reading.
