Which of these could you use to separate a mixture of sand and salt? Filtration, evaporation, magnetism, or distillation?

    Well from my understanding (i really hope you read up these terms), the salt is soluble in water while the sand is not. I think filtration does the job. However, if you want the salt only, evaporation could work. Hope this helped ^_^

    hm you would have to filtrate it even if you only wanted the salt, evaporating would be the next step in the recovery.
