Can you separate a mixture?

Through the process of distallation and filtration.
In order to separate the mixture of salt and water you have to putthem both into a shallow container (lots of surface area) and letthe water evaporate. If you're interested in… savaging the freshwater, then you must use a still (distilling device) that firstevaporates the water and then condenses it. Or you could set up ahomemade apparatus to collect the water. Put the saltwater at thebottom of a pot, then put a cup in the center making sure nosaltwater gets in the cup. Put the lid on the pot upside down sothe handle points at the cup. The water will evaporate leaving thesalt and then in will hit the top, condense, and roll down to thehandle where it will drop into the cup. salt and water are basic mixtures they can be easily separated by the method of evapration put the salt water in the hot sun the water will be evaprated and you will be left with salt!
Yes - First, you pour water into the mixture, and mix thoroughly. The sugar will dissolve into the water, but the sawdust won't. Then you get filter paper and make a cone with… it (fold it into a quarter then push at the sides), then put it in a funnel and put that in a beaker/pot (depends on amount of mixture). When all of the water has drained through the paper, you will be left with sawdust on the filter-paper and sugar-water in the beaker-pot. To separate the sugar from the water, heat the water up until it has all evaporated, leaving sugar crystals in the pot/beaker.
maybe...by using a sifter
It is easy to separate cornstarch from water. They are in a "mixture" together. That means that there has been no chemical reaction. The cornstarch is still cornstarch; the wa…ter is still water. Therefore you can "physically" separate them using techniques like evaporation, filtration, distillation, etc. In this case, simple evaporation would work. Of course, you will not end up with a nice powder; rather you will end up with a very hard 'clump' of cornstarch. By the way: If you used tap water (which contains dissolved minerals), the minerals will also stay behind when the water evaporates. That will add to the clumping of the original corn starch and would mean that you no longer have pure cornstarch. ----end of answer---- ----further fun---- Fun with cornstarch: Cornstarch and water is, indeed, a mixture ... but a very special one called a suspension (where the particles are suspended in the water and would settle out if given enough time). The cornstarch is not actually wet, even in water.! This particular suspension has another special property, as it is a "Non-Newtonian" liquid. That means it acts like a liquid if you don't disturb it, but as soon as you do, it acts like a solid. Example of what happens: If you stir the 'liquid' *slowly* with your finger, it acts just like a liquid. Try it again by stirring real fast and it will be like trying to stir a very thick kind of solid mass! Search the Web for something like "cornstarch experiment" and you'll get lots of sites that will tell you how to do the experiment. And all it takes is cornstarch and water mixed to make a paste about like pancake batter!
Fractional distillation, which separates the components of a solution according to boiling point.
You could put it trough a very fine item with small holes the pepper will sink through but the salt will be to big. Just keep shaking it lightly.
First, add water to the sugar and chalk solution. . Stir until the sugar dissolves. . The chalk will form a layer on top of the water, allowing you to scoop it out with a sp…oon. . Then, let the water evaporate on a hot plate, which will cause the sugar to crystallize in the container.
The smarties are big enough for you to pick it up with your bare hands?? I'm guessing the smarties you are talking about is the sweets..
by puting them sea prat cupes
Filtration. The water passes through the filter while the rocks are trapped. This is an example of a physical separation.
To separate a mixture of sand and alum, dissolve the mixture inwater and then separate the sand by filtration. The sand will beleft on the filter paper as residue, and the sol…ution of water andalum can be separated by evaporation
You pour the sand and Styrofoam mixture into the a glass of water. Then the sand will sink to the bottom and the Styrofoam will float that is how you separate a sand and Sty…rofoam mixture
Distillation! Water and alcohol have different boiling points; one is lower than the other. Heat the mixture up until it one of the two boils away. In the case of alcohol and …water, alcohol has the lower boiling point. Heat the mixture to just above the boiling point of alcohol but below the boiling point of water and voila!- you've separated the mixture.
By filtration. Filter the sand from the water using filter paper and a funnel.
first dissolve the mixture in water and then sediment/filter the sand out of it. then, evaporate the water to get back the sugar crystals. an alternative method is to use a s…uitable kitchen sieve to separate the sand and the sugar crystals.
