Is never a simple answer, Will bath bombs fizz in cold water, well yes, but also no.
The yes part is that salt reacts to water, but salt reacts better in warmer to hotter waters, the hotter, the better!
When the salt compound structure is added to water, salt starts to breaks down in Water, and reacts with the hotter water molecules, in short, think of it like a magnet, the positive sides of the water attract the negative side of the salt and visa a versa.
Some science lessons, this bring a whole new meaning to salt breaking down in Water.
The difference between the hot and cold water when salt is added, the difference is the molecules in hot water, are moving or the water is vibrating faster.
The molecules moving faster, interact more with the salt and breaks the salt down quicker, thus grabbing their opposing poles and breaking the salt down at a faster rate.
Now when I look at salt breaking down in water, I’m going to think of it like dancing, people (salt) in the middle, waiting for someone (water molecules) to come and take them away for a dances, the hotter the ballroom gets, the quicker the water finds their partner to dance with
Science is fun, I remember learning this in school, who knew it would influence future topics or goals!
