Separation of substances


Why do we need to separate different components of a mixture? Give two examples.


The two or more substances are mixed to form a mixture. The separation of substances is done to obtain two or more components with different properties. Like, when we separate stone from rice, we give non-essential substances, which is stone. Similarly, when we separate oil from water, we get two different useful substances, which are oil and water.
