When you place some sugar in water, it seems to disappear! We say it dissolves.

The hotter the water, the faster the sugar will dissolve.

As water is a liquid, its molecules are constantly moving.

If the ater is hot, its molecules are moving even faster. A single grain of sugar consists of millions of molecules of sugar which are held closely together as a solid.

The moving water molecules bombard the sugar grains on all
