Can a mixture be separated?

Methods are: distillation, sieving, decantation, filtration, ionexchange - depending on the type of mixture.
Filtration and distillation.
salt and water. let the water evaporate and the salt should be left behind.
Of course, you can separate a mixture with evaporation, filters or with cooling and boiling.
Many methods exist: - distillation - crystallization - sieving - electromagnetic separation - decanting - gravimetric - radiometric - centrifuging - solvent …extraction - ion exchanging -etc.
If it was chemically combined, then no. If it was physically combined, then yes.
A mixture cannot be separated with chemical change because a mixture is two or more substances which will retain their physical properties when combined. Mixtures are separate…d by physical means like filters, sifting, chromatography, centrifuge, electrophoresis and magnetic attraction depending on what the mixture is composed of.
Separating mixture refers to the separation of more than twosolutes or solutions.
Yes, for example a mixture of gold dust, iron, sand, and pebbles isseparated this way: . the iron can be separated with a magnet . the pebbles can be separated using a mesh… screen that lets thegold dust and sand fall through but not the pebbles . the gold dust and sand can be separated using water suspension,the gold dust rapidly settles to the bottom, the sand slowlysettles on top due to density differences
A mixture of salt and sand can be separated because the salt issoluble while the sand is not.
