What can we do to a mixture of water and sugar to help dissolve the sugar crystals faster?
Heat the mixture, stir the mixture, powder the sugar reducing the size of the sugar crystals.
The greater the kinetic energy of the mixture the faster the sugar will dissolve.
Stirring the mixture will increase the number of collisions that will aid in the formation of the sugar water mixture.
Breaking the sugar into smaller and smaller crystals will increase the surface area of the sugar increasing the number of collisions aiding the formation of the sugar water mixture.
