# Why different amounts of sugar might dissolve at different times?

## Why different amounts of sugar might dissolve at different times?

Increasing the temperature of water, decreases the time it takes to dissolve the sugar in water. At a higher temperature, there are more spaces between the water molecules for the sugar to dissolve into so the solution forms more quickly.

### Why does it take long for sugar to dissolve in cold water?

Why does sugar dissolve slower in cold water? Therefore, the higher the temperature, the more quickly the sugar cube will break apart and dissolve in the water. In the cold water, the particles move more slowly and interact at a slower rate. Therefore, the sugar cube will dissolve the slowest in the cold water.

#### What is the best temperature to dissolve sugar?

0 degrees Celsius
Sugar dissolves in water at 0 degrees Celsius. This is because sugar is soluble in liquid water at all temperatures at standard pressure.

How long does it take sugar to dissolve?

Sugar dissolves in water at 0 degrees Celsius. This is because sugar is soluble in liquid water at all temperatures at standard pressure. It takes 10min. to dissolve in cold water, with occasional stirring.

How long does it take for sugar to dissolve on low heat?

Sugar melts at about 320 degrees F. and will turn to a clear liquid at that temperature. After sugar dissolves and syrup is simmering, cook for approximately 8 to 10 minutes, without stirring. Hold handle of pan and gently tilt the pan off the heat to distribute color evenly as sugar caramelizes.

## Why does sugar dissolve more in hot water?

The reason the hot water dissolves more is because it has faster moving molecules which are spread further apart than the molecules in the cold water. With bigger gaps between the molecules in the hot water, more sugar molecules can fit in between.

### How does temperature affect the dissolving of chocolate?

Observe for about 1 minute. More color and sugar dissolve from the M&M in the hot water and less in the room-temperature and cold water. This means there is more chocolate visible on the M&M in the hot water than there is in the room-temperature and cold water.

#### What happens when sugar is no longer dissolved in a cup?

Another name for the liquids inside the cups is a ‘solution’, when this solution can no longer dissolve sugar it becomes a ‘saturated solution’, this means that sugar starts forming on the bottom of the cup.

How does the temperature of the water affect dissolving?

The room-temperature water serves as a control and can help students see the difference in how temperature affects dissolving. Have groups place an M&M in cold, room-temperature, and hot water at the same time to investigate the effect of temperature on dissolving.
