No, sugar is heavier than salt.

How much does one teaspoon from two teaspoon of salt affect the freeze point of tap water?

First of all, every teaspoon of salt will affect the freezing point exactly the same, as long as it dissolves, so the second teaspoon will affect it as much as the first. Secondly, it depends on how much water you use to dissolve the salt. The reason is that the freezing point depends on the concentration of the salt water. A very simplifed way to figure this out is to divide 0.001 by the number of cups of water you are using. This is a close estimate for how much one teaspoon of salt will decrease the freezing point. You can see that it takes a lot of salt to make a big change.

How many grams are in 163 teaspoons?

it depends on the content of the teaspoons, teaspoons measure volume , not weight example : a teaspoon of cooking oil doesn't weight the same as a teaspoon of sugar

How many grams in half a teaspoon?

Well, that depends entirely upon what you are measuring. Grams is a unit of mass and a teaspoon is a unit of volume. For instance: If you fill a teaspoon with water it's weight (mass x gravity) is very small. However, if you fill that same teaspoon with lead it would be much heavier. Seeing that gravity doesn't change, nor does the teaspoon...the only thing that changes is the mass (number of grams). So there isn't a set number of grams per teaspoon. It depends upon what you are measuring. This applies no mater how many Grams or teaspoons you are trying to convert.

How much does one grain of salt weigh?

That's an impossible question to answer, as each one of the 1 million grains of sand will all be a different size and density, making each one of them weigh a different amount. Because of this, no 1 million grains of sand will weigh the same amount.

When 5 teaspoon of salt are dissolved into 8 oz of water and 5 teaspoon of sugar are dissolved into 8 oz of water which 8 oz of water will make a egg rise first?

Either one would have the same effect. The reason for this is that when you dissolved the sugar or salt in the water, you changed the mass of the water. Now, the egg weighs less than what is in the glass and will float. Since you are adding the same amounts, the time it would take the egg to rise would be the same.

Is a sugar cube equal to a teaspoon?
