Name the technique to separate - Salt from Sea-water




There can be two methods

  • Crystallisation
  • Evaporation

Let's look at both of them


By Crystallisation

  • It is a process that separates pure solid from an impure solution in the form of crystals.
  • In this case, sea water is heated in an open container. Then it is left to cool .
  • After some time, pure salt is obtained in the form of crystals .


By simple Evaporation

  • Sea water is left in an open pit / container for evaporation
  • When the water evaporates , pure salt is left behind in the container
  • Hence salt is separated from sea-water.
