The water evaporates and the salt remains in the beaker
It really depends on what you are trying to find out. If you want to know the effect of salt on the boiling point of water, then the answer is that salt water will boil at a higher temperature than pure water. So we can say that salt increases the boiling point of water, which is normally 100 degrees C.

If you just want the observations of boiling salt water, then the answer is that as the water is boiling, it evaporates into the atmosphere as water vapour. So we actually lose water from the beaker (or whatever you are boiling the water in) into the air. If you boil it long enough, the water will eventually be lost altogether and you'll be left with dry salt crystals on the bottom and sides of the beaker.

What happens to salt water when is boiled?

When adding salt to water, in any concentration it raises the boiling point of the water. However, as the water is boiled the water evaporates leaving the salt behind and the salinity of the water increases (think the Dead Sea).

What is an effective way to extract salt from water?

Distilling is an effective way to extract salt from water. You can boil the salt water and collect the steam for fresh, salt free water. Once the water has all boiled away, you can collect the salt that is left on the bottom of whatever you boiled the salt water in.

When you boil salt water you are left with salt why?

Water, when boiled, changes form into steam, which will leave whatever is dissolved in it in the original container. Salt dissolves in water, therefore it is left in the container from which water has evaporated from when boiled. Basically, the water boils away before the salt does, so you are left with salt.

How do you get sodium chloride from salt solution?

A salt solution contains salt (sodium chloride) and water. If you want to separate the salt from the water, you need to boil the water. When the water is boiled, it will form a gas and leave the salt solution. (It doesn't need to be boiled, and could be left to sit in room temperature where the water can evaporate). Therefore, the salt is left behind and is separated from the water.
