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 isbecause there is no chemical bond formed between the two thingswhen they are mixed.
Mixtures can be separated by a series of physical changes. This iswhat 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,
Separating mixture refers to the separation of more than twosolutes or solutions.
