Does salt lower boiling point?

Addition of a solute, a salt if you like, to a solvent, should increase the boiling point of the solution with respect to the pure solvent.


Boiling point elevation and freezing point depression with respect to the pure solvent, are characteristic properties of solutions; and their measurement can sometimes allow determination of molecular masses. In your text, consult colligative properties.
