A mixture contains water, kerosene and sand. How will you separate this mixture?

We will separate a mixture of kerosene oil, water, and sand by the following steps:
  • To separate sand from the mixture by passing it through a filter paper or by decantation.
  • The mixture of kerosene and water is left. Leave it undisturbed for some time.  Kerosene, being less dense than water, starts floating on it. By using a separating funnel, we can separate the mixture of kerosene and water.
