Chemistry - Evaporation and distillation
Evaporation and distillation
The process of evaporation  is used to separate dissolved substances
(solutes) from their solvent. Click the 'Play' option below to see salt
extracted from water by evaporation.
Distillation is also used to separate dissolved mixtures. Distillation
uses heating to vapourise the solvent then cooling to condense the purified
solvent back to a liquid. View the animation for examples of distillation
