Describe a procedure that could be used to separate a mixture consisting of sand and salt.

Answer:

To separate sand and table salt you would add water. Table salt dissolves in water leaving salt water and sand. The sand then will go through the process of filtration leaving salt water and sand separated. Then allow the salt water to evaporate where the salt will not evaporate and allow the salt to be separated from the sand.
