One thought on “Does Salt Affect Evaporation Rates?

  1. While this is a common experiment, I appreciate the fact that you tied this back to converting your swimming pool from chlorine to salt water – which is a very practical problem in our world today. Your data and graph were easy to follow. Your research page should reference the specific document or webpage you used for your research. Great job overall!
