Would filtration be an appropriate to separate a mixture?
A suspension can be separate from the liquid by filtration.
Apply Concepts and enspIn general when would you use filtration to separate a mixture When would you use distillation to separate a mixture?
What laboratory procedure you would use to separate and recover the components of a mixture containing BaSO4 Na2CO3 and C10H8?
Since salt is soluble in water then you have to separate the mixture from sand first and this is done by filtration. The sand will be left in the filter paper and the filtererd solution would be that of salt and water. To get the salt you would then have to heat the solution and the water will evaporate leaving the salt behind. Filter Paper
To separate out the iron fillings, run a magnet over the mixture of iron fillings, sand and water. As iron is a magnetic material, it will stick to the magnet thus allowing you to take it out. Then, run the mixture over a filter funnel with filter paper. After the filtration, the filtrate would be water and the sand would be stuck on the filter paper.
Carl's teacher has asked him to separate a mixture of sand and iron filings Which of these methods would correctly separate the mixture?
React the mixture with H2SO4 because copper is more reactive and a mettalic oxide so it would displace H2 from H2SO4 which would escape out in form of gas and CuSO4 would form . Then mix the mixture with water of CuSO4 and gold formed above . CuSO4 would get mix with water and filter out gold with filtration which is insoluble in water.
The process of recrystallization typically involves the dissolving of a crude solid in a recrystallization solvent by heating up the mixture. For crystallization to begin the crude solid has to dissolve completely so if it is observed that the crude solid has not completely dissolved a hot filtration step is required to separate the solids that are suspended.
How do you separate ppt of lead sulphate obtained by adding sulphuric acid to a solution of lead nitrate?
To separate salt from sand, first you add water to the mixture of salt and sand such that the salt completely dissolves in the water. Then, using filtration, you separate the sound out of the salt solution by passing the solution through filter paper (this leves the sand on the filter paper). The salt solution which passes through the filter into the lower container is then boiled away to evaporate the water and leave salt.
