Question

Describe a method to separate a mixture of camphor and sand.


Solution

We know that camphor is a sublime substance and sand is not a sublime substance. Thus we can separate camphor from sand by heating the mixture slowly. The vapours of camphor are then collected and cooled down. The solid camphor will form crystals. This process is also called sublimation.
