Question

How is cream separated from milk?


Solution

The process of centrifugation is used in dairies to separate cream from milk. 
Centrifugation is a method for separating the suspended particles of a substance from a liquid in which the mixture is rotated at a high speed in a centrifuge machine.
The milk is put in a closed container in a big centrifuge machine.
When the centrifuge machine is switched ON,  the milk is rotated at the very high speed in a container. 
Due to this process, milk separates into cream and skimmed milk. 
The cream being lighter floats over the skimmed milk.
