How might one separate a mixture of water and salt?


A solution of water and salt may be separated, if you don't want the water, by allowing the water to evaporate which will leave the salt crystals behind. If you want the water AND the salt, you may separate them by distillation. The water may be distilled and condensed into a separate container and the salt will be left in the boiling pot. I hope this helps.
