How Does Sugar Affect the Boiling Point of Water?

Answer

If you add a solute, or solid, to water when boiling the water the resulting solution will behave differently. Sugar will affect the boiling point of water by increasing the boiling point as well as decreasing purity will increase the boiling point. The molecules of the water and sugar mixture are less organized than molecules in pure water because the solid, or sugar, molecules or ions are free to move randomly in the water and this makes the water molecules more disorderly.
