Im going to show you how to separate sodium chloride and sand. (o^-‘)b ｸﾞｯ!
10g of sand
10g of sodium chloride (salt)Bunsen burner
Pour the mixture (sand and sodium chloride) into a 100ml beaker
Add 50ml of water to your mixture
Heat your mixture
Use the glass rod to mix your mixture and to get the salt dissolved
Stop heating when the salt is completely dissolved
(keep the bunsen burner, you will use it later on!)
Get a retort stand, a funnel and a piece of filter paper, a ring and a 300ml beaker.
Set up the filtering system like so:
Place the other beaker it at the bottom
Start pouring the mixture into the filtering paper : little by little
(TIP: change your filter paper if it becomes soaking wet. Keep the sand though!)
The sand will stay on filter paper while the salt water is now flowing into the other beaker
Place the salt water on a bunsen burner and start heating the salt water
Wait until the water evaporates completely.
and now if you have done it correct, you have only the salt left over in the beaker.
