Is salt water a homogeneous mixture or heterogeneous mixture?
Asked in Science, Chemistry, Elements and Compounds
How do you separate salt from a salt-sand mixture?
Mix the salt-sand mixture with water and filter it. As the salt will be dissolved in the water, when it is filtered the residue will be the sand and the filtrate will be the salt-water mixture. To separate the salt-water mixture, it must go through a process called 'evaporation'. When all the water is evaporated from the salt-water mixture, everything left will be the salt.
Asked in Chemistry
Is salt and water a mixture A solution is it both a mixture and a solution?
Salt and water is a mixture. In a mixture you can mix them together then take them apart. When you put salt in water the salt does not dissolve therefore it is a mixture. If salt dissolved in water it would then be a solution,but salt does not dissolve in water so it is a mixture. Salt does dissolve in water to form a solution, which is a mixture. If a chemical that was insoluble in water was added to water, a mixture would also be formed. Slaf can be separated from water by evaporation and crystallisation, the undissolved chemical by filtration.
