The shape of the granules, and the taste. Salt is mainly cubic, and sugar looks a bit like a fallen column. Of course sugar is sweet, and salt is, well, salty.

Correct! Your turn. (I don't think we're allowed to taste it)

What’s are the differences between wool and silk (when burned)? (Hey girls you doing the curiosity confidence challenge?)

I think wool has a stronger odor than that of silk, although they are similar. Also, silk stops burning once you take it out of the flame but wool may continue for a bit.

How do you identify the difference between polyester, nylon, and acrylic in a burn test? How do they differ underneath a microscope?
