SePeRaTiNg SuBsTaNcEs Questions

1. What is the order for obtaining salt from sand?

2. What is the method to seperate colours from each other?

3. Describe the steps to get pure water from distillation.

4. What is the difference from Pure water and Clean water?

5. Why does filteration only work with a solid and a liquid?

6. How would you sepereate salt from a salt solution?

SePeRaTiNg SuBsTaNcEs Answers

1. dissolving in water - filtration - evaporation

2. Chromatography

3. The dirty water is heated to the boiling point. Then it evaporates and becomes water vapour. The water vapour goes into the leibig condenser and condenses back into liquid water. The liquid water runs down the leibig condenser and into the beaker as purified water whilst the other substances remain solid in the flask.

4. Pure Water- no other chemicals in it. Clean Water- no harmful chemicals in it

5. If it were just mixed chemicals, the substances wont seperate

6. Evaporation

4. When 2 solutions are being mixed together

12 of 16

eLeCtRoLySiS, PeRiOdIc TaBlE, PaRtIcLeS

Electrodes- Solide conductors of electricity attached to a power supply in electrolysis

Electrolysis- Passing electricity through a compound when it is molten or in a solution to break it down

Electroplating- Putting a thin coating of a metal onto another metal using electrolysis

Periodic Table- Solids, Liquids, Gases. Metals-right, Non-metals-left. Bromine & Mercury are metals but liquids at room temp.

Particles- Solid- Strong bonds, tightly packed, lots of vibration. Liquid- Bonds, room to move around in, less vibration between particle. Gas- Weak bonds, lots of space, no vibration between particle.

13 of 16

ReNeW, Re-UsE, ReCyClE

Renew- To make something new again

Re-Use- When you use the object over and over again

Recycle- To break the object down and make it into something else
