How will you separate common salt, sand and iron filings from their mixture?


To separate common salt, sand and iron filings from their mixture, the following steps should be used:
  1. Magnetic Separation: A magnet is moved over a mixture of iron filings, sand, and common salt. In the process, iron filings are separated by the magnet.
  2. Filtration: Sand and common salt are mixed in water. While salt dissolves in water, sand does not. So, sand is separated by filtration.
  3. Evaporation: On heating the filtrate, all the water evaporates from the mixture, and salt crystals are left behind.
