Snowballs + Rock Salt = Ice

Recommended Posts

I'd like to suggest making, as the title suggests, a recipe for Snowballs + Rock Salt to create Ice which could be used for Larders more effectively than snowballs and also potentially more cooking recipes as well.

 

If people wanted this to be more on the realistic side of things (as the community usually does), a condition could be included that they must be combined inside a container then placed into a larder already containing snowballs or ice and it could craft just like waiting for a meal to cook sort of thing.

 

Cool idea anyway, pun intended

Combine enough ice and you can make ice sculptures!...?

Salt to make ice? Realy??

I think this is how that works :

 

Ice lowers the freezing temperature.  So, we put it on roads so that the water won't freeze at a normal freezing temperature.

 

On the other hand, it also helps make ice colder.  Water without salt freezes at 0°c.  Now add salt, and you can lower that freezing temperature down to -21°c.

So even with salt, you'll still get ice.  You'll get colder, denser ice.

Add some salt to your ice

Reylaark's got it right :)

 

The way it works is that salt lowers the freezing temperature of water so when the water does finally freeze, it is at a much lower than normal temperature.

 

That link to https://sciencing.com/rock-salt-make-ice-colder-5207350.html explains it perfectly.

 

That's why I figured I'd include the idea of it being created within a larder that is already cooled; to sort of add an additional aspect of realism.
