What happens when you add sugar to water?


As sugar dissolves in water, the crystals break down, releasing tiny particles. Sugar particles pass through the holes between the water particles and combine to form a sugar syrup.

  • When you add sugar to water, the volume changes slightly, but not significantly.
  • Since there are slight spaces inside and among the molecules of water, some sugar molecules will occupy these spaces, resulting in a volume that is less than the expected volume.
