Experiment #6Separation of a MixtureBackground:Mixtures are two or more substances combined and can be separated by usingtheir physical properties such as boiling point, melting point and solubility. We can utilize theseproperties to help determine how to selectively separate one component from the mixture. Thepercentage of each component in the original mixture can be calculated.Safety Precautions:Wear goggles, be cautious with beakersMaterials:The materials needed for this lab were a mixture of sand and salt, stirring rod, filterpaper tunnel, hot plate, beaker, and 250 mL of water.Procedure:To initiate the lab, we obtained and recorded the mass of a sample about 2g of amixture of salt and sand. We poured the mixture into a beaker and recorded the mass. After wedetermined the mass of the beaker and sample, we added 25 mL of water to the beaker with thesalt and sand. We began to stir the mixture so the salt can start to dissolve into the water. After
