filter out insoluble
component.

2. Explain why the technique at left would not be effective in separating a mixture of
salt and sugar.
Both sugar and salt are soluble in water. Both would be in the solution that passes through the
filter paper.

3. Draw particle representations for the following:
A mixture of iron and sulfur

A compound of iron and sulfur

Any ratio, particles not bound
