if more sugar is placed into a glass of iced tea than can dissolve in the te,the additional sugar will sink to the bottom of the iced tea.
Which of the following statements best accounts for the observation that an oversupply of sugar crystals will collect on the bottom of the iced tea solution:
1)air pressure pushes them down
2)sugar has more molecules that water
3)Sugar has more mass than an equal volume of iced tea solution
4)Sugar is less dense than a solution of tea in water
5)sugar molecules are larger than iced tea molecules.
