Yes, it does. When the water evaporates, it can not take the salt with it, so if you left a glass of salt water out, when it is evaporated the salt will be on the glass.

salt is added, or dissolved into it, oceans are about 30 - 33%

No lakes in the world have saltwater and fresh water because if salt water entered a fresh water lake, the fresh water would turn into salt waterRead more: What_lake_has_both_salt_water_and_freshwater

The fresh water will turn salty... :L Derr,

you can filter the sea water to get rid of the sand. Then you boil the sea water and the salt will turn to crystals. Then filter the water again and then you don't have sand or salt in the water.

Distillation is the easiest way. Heat the water until it evaporates, leaving the salt behind. Catch and condense the water vapor into pure water.

Water turns into steam when it evaporates.

there are many ways but the good one is that u boil the water then cold the eveoportion of the water.

Simple. turn of the chlorine generator and pretend there is fresh water in there as time wears on the salt will get weaker and weaker.

Water vapour or steam if the water is boiling

There are several methods of desalination:Distillation. The fresh water evaporates and is collected in a cooler place. This can be simple or complex. Rain is a distillation process. Heating up the salt water makes it evaporate faster.Reverse Osmosis. There are membranes that pass fresh water. Pressuring the salt water to push it through the osmotic membrane speeds up the process. This is the preferred way for large scale drinking water plants, because of its lower energy requirement.Electrolysis. Turn the salt water into oxygen and hydrogen then recombine them. Result pure water.

Yes, once the water evaporates it rises into th air then turns into a gas. P.R

Well a man named Dean Kamen (the founder of deka) has made a machine that can turn salt water to fresh water

They do not turn it into freshwater, they just have the ability to exude or process excess salt within their bodies. Sometimes if you see sea birds, they appear to have a crusty film around their nasal openings on their beaks. This is excess salt

No, salt water is not able to turn to ice.

This gas is also water in the form of vapors.

Only water as a liquid is transformed in water vapors.

Water is water, whether solid (ice), liquid or gas.

Most rivers are filled by precipitation, which is caused by evaporating water. Salt can not evaporate with it as it is a mineral not a liquid. The water in rivers is always flowing with nice clean water and the sediment from animal feces and carcasses are wash away into the ocean, and can not turn to salt in the bottom of the river.Therefor rivers are full of fresh water.

Generally speaking, desert areas are known to be places where there are water shortages. This can be improved if there are water tables below the surface that can be drilled and thus bring fresh water to the dry surface. Also, desert areas near salt water lakes or oceans can by a chemical process turn the salt water into fresh water.

When you boil salt water, the salt will be left behind as a solid. You can collect the water by distillation. For example, if you boil the salt water in a pot with a lid, and leave the lid at an angle, the evaporated water will collect there and fall off - so you can collect it. Desalination is a process that removes some of the salt from water - making sea water drinkable.

yes it does as the air mixed in with the water, evaporates into steam.

sure, heat it up and condence the vapour and you get pure water Yes. Without the assistance of man, it can freeze and only the water is present. The other way is from osmosis through layers of ground or sand that will filter out the salt.

When water evaporates into the air, there is no other way of getting it to become liquid again. Only when there is condensation the steam can turn back into liquid.

You would have to boil the salt with water
