Unformatted text preview: condense for fifteen minutes 6. Turn off hot plate Figure 1 7. Use a clean pipette to place 1 drop of the desalinated water onto clean salinity tester 8. Read and record the new salinity 9. Clean up station and await further instructions from teacher Data : Initial Salinity of Salt Water Final Salinity of Distilled Water 4.75% 0.00% Conclusion : The hypothesis was proven to be correct, the initial salinity of 4.75% was reduced to 0.00% after the distillation process. The salt in the original salt water was left behind in the Erlenmeyer flask during evaporation, so only pure water molecules traveled through the rubber tubing and into the beaker, resulting in purified, distilled water with a salinity of 0.00%....
