Put the mixture in alcohol. The sugar will dissolve, but the salt won't. Then, you can separate them.

You can separate dry salt and sugar by adding alcohol.

You can separate salt from sugar by using organic solvents. What this will do is dissolve the sugar and leave the salt, which can then be filtered.

The solution of salt is not as the solution of sugar

It's not going to be super easy. Column chromatography could separate the salt and sugar, followed by distillation/evaporation to separate the water and salt.

I don't think you can if sugar or salt has already dissolved.But if there are too much sugar or salt, it will crystallize and you can use filter paper to separate them.

A mixture of salt and sugar can be separated by using an organic solvent to dissolve the sugar. When the sugar is dissolved, it can be separated by filtering the salt from the liquid sugar.

The difference between salt and sugar i think is that if u separate sugar from salt, u can use a magnet so that would be an easy way of separating the sugar from salt!

Put the mixture in alcohol and only the sugar will dissolve, then you can take the salt out, and when the water evaporates, the sugar will be left.

Put them in water. Sugar dissolves, sand remains Filter the solution to separate sand and salt. Evaporate solution with dissolved salt to get salt back

No because sugar is organic and will dissolve in organic solvents such as achol salt will not.

Sugar burns when it is heated to a very high temperature. Salt does not burn.

You cant separate them, because if you try to add water they will both dissolve and if you try to evaporate the water you will be left with both the salt and sugar again.

Any of the three types of chromatography (column , thin - layer or paper) can be used to separate the salt from sugar and vice-verse !

Sugar is soluble (dissolves) in alcohol, where as salt is insoluble (does not dissolve) in alcohol. If you mix sugar and salt into alcohol then filter the solution, only salt will remain. After this, you can evaporate the alcohol out of the sugar. Voila!

Sugar will not dissolve. If you have a solution of sugar and salt, and you were to evaporate the water, both sugar and salt would be left. In order to remove either the sugar or the salt, you would have to use a chemical reaction that would cause either the salt or the sugar to undergo a chemical change.

it is higly improbably to separate salt and sugar and keep them both however sugar dissovles in water unlike salt so add water and you will end up with just salt

Evaporate the water, suger and salt will be left behind.

Sugar is soluble in ethanol; sodium chloride is not dissolved.

1. Salt will dissolve in carbon disulphide 2. Now we have a mixture of iron filings sugar and carbon disulphide(salt dissolved in it) 3. Separate iron filings by magnet. 4. Remove the sugar by Decantation process. 5. Separate carbon disulphide and salt by distilation.

Glass is separated by fitration. Sugar can be separated from salt by a repeated process of crystallization/recrystalization.

A mixture of salt and sugar can be separated by using an organic solvent to dissolve the sugar. When the sugar is dissolved, it can be separated by filtering the salt from the liquid sugar,then recrystallise both solutions to from back their original crystals.

boil it all in a kettle - this will leave you with salt grains and sugar particles

Pour the mixture in alcohol. The sugar will dissolve and the salt can be separated, and then, pour water on the alcohol/sugar solution. Wait for the water/alcohol to evaporate, then the sugar will be left.

It will be difficult to separate them in something that they both dissolve into (like water or ethanol). You can try changing the temperature and the sugar may precipitate out, depending on the sugar. To get a complete separation I would evaporated the water first and just separate the salt and sugar. Then you can separate the solids by dissolving the sugar into a polar solvent like toluene. NaCl will not dissolve in toluene but all of the sugar should.

well, i think you lick it. The salt tastes salty, and the sugar tastes sweet. Isn't that simple?
