Problem: When 13.62 g (about one tablespoon) of table sugar (sucrose, C12H22O11) is dissolved in 241.5 mL of water (density 0.997 g/mL), the final volume is 250.0 mL (about one cup).If you had to bring this syrup to the boiling point for a recipe, would you expect it to take much more time than it takes to boil the same amount of pure water? Why or why not?
