Parts of a mixture with different properties will act differently when changed in the same way. So you can use a physical change to push, pull, lift, or otherwise separate one… part of a mixture from another. Density, solubility, particle size, magnetism, melting points, and boiling points are all good properties to use when separating mixtures. If two liquids have two different boiling points, you can use distillation . You can also separate liquids, or the particles in liquids, using chromatography. You can also use a screen or filter.
Yes they can.
Mixtures can be separated because they were never chemically combined. The molecules were never bonded which makes it easier to go backwards a separate them.
yes, yes it can
Some mixtures can be separated by physical changes. For example distilling alcohol can be done by heating the mixture to between the boiling points of water and alcohol, so th…e alcohol boils off, leaving the water. The alcohol is then condensed into another container.
Yes, actually, mixtures can be separated by their parts. This is because there is no chemical bond formed between the two things when they are mixed.
Mixtures can be separated by a series of physical changes. This is what makes it a mixture and not a solution.
Yes, mixtures can be separated with a centrifuge, and mixed liquids and powders can be separated by different evaporation techniques.
what kind of mixtures? mixing salt and sugar? salt and sand? but if you're a middle school chemistry student, then the answer ought to be yes.
it can be separated by using a separation funnel with oil and water
because the components of a mixture are not changed
No, mixtures cannot be separated chemically, only physically because a mixture is basically made by mixing other substances together. (:
Easily, but exact procedure will depend on the mixture.
Depends on how it is mixed. If it is (for example) oil and water you can seperate it using a seperating funnel. If water and sand then filtration. If water and salt then evapo…ration (or you can use distillation if you need both the water and the salt...) If water and something like ethanol then you can use fractional distillation. Or is this not what you mean when you said seperating mixtures by physical means?
No, compounds are a bond between only two elements, and can be easily separated. Mixtures on the other hand are a bonding between three or more elements and are much harder to… separate,
