Separation of substances


How would you obtain clear water from a sample of muddy water?


We can obtain clean water from the sample of muddy water by filtration. The process which is used to separate a solid substance from a liquid by allowing the liquid substance to pass through the filtering medium is called filtration. In the process of filtration, the liquid is allowed to pass through the filter paper attached to a funnel. The liquid will pass through the paper while the solid will remain on the filter paper.
