# Which boils pasta faster?

## Purpose

The purpose of this experiment is to see which way to boil pasta is faster, with our without salt.

## Hypothesis

Regular water boils faster than salt water.

## Procedure

2 Pots www.onlinestopwatch.com/largestopwatch

5 Cups of water for each pot stove

1 TSP. of Sea Salt

1/4 box of spaghetti noodles

1. First, I got two pots for each experiment.

2. I put 5 cups of room temperature tap water into the first pot and then 1 TSP. of sea salt.

4. I then took half of the noodles from 1/4 of the box and broke them in half and put them into the first pot with salt.

5. My mom then turned to stove on to medium high heat.

## With salt in the water

1. The first sign of boiling was at 6 minutes and 53 seconds.
2. A white foam started at 9 minutes and 12 seconds.
3. Small boiling was 11 minutes and 57 seconds.
4. The rolling boil was at 12 minutes and 43 seconds.

## Without the salt in it

1. The first signs of boil started at 7 minutes and 2 seconds.
2. The white foam started at 8 minutes and 32 seconds.
3. At 14 minutes and 1 second, the boiling began.
4. 17 minutes and 28 seconds the rolling boil started.

## Conclusion

After conducting the experiment, my hypothesis was wrong. Salt does help pasta boil faster.
