Mixtures can be separated by using physical properties which include, but are not limited, to color, size, density, mass, and solubility. The objective of this lab is to separate the heterogeneous mixture into a homogeneous mixture and other substances and then separate the homogeneous mixture into two compounds, one of which is water. The procedure developed and followed by the lab group to accomplish the objective of this laboratory activity will be written using Inspiration ® , a graphic organizer, and turned in for a grade.
With your lab partners for this activity, plan and write down how to do the two separations. Try the procedure in the assigned lab area for the group. If needed, make changes in the procedure and try to do the separations with the modified procedure. The final procedure is the one that will be shown using the graphic organizer.
