Saltwater: The Reason An Ocean Is Salty

Saltwater: The Reason An Ocean Is Salty

Ocean water is full of mineral salts which enter through the rivers, passing through rock and soil. Water has a property of evaporation whereas salt does not, so a lot of salt is left behind.

Oceans are saline throughout the world, but the Mediterranean Sea is saltier. Many oceans are less salty due to the regular mixing of fresh river water.

The 5-second rule

The idea that food is safe to eat off the floor if you pick it up quickly is not accurate.
