When I heat water, it drips faster than it did when it was cold. This is because the molecule move faster. When I heated a Propel Zero water and when I heated Kool-Aid which is made mostly of water, they did not drip faster, they dripped slower. Why? Is is beacause there is salt in both or because they both have vitamin C in them?
