Solution

Distillation

  • Distillation is a process of filtration which includes the conversion of a liquid into vapour and then condensed back to liquid.
  • In this process, the water is heated and is then kept at the temperature to maintain the water vaporization while stopping other elements from vaporizing.
  • The vaporized water is then condensed, and the water collected is called distilled water.
  • The advantage of this process is that it separates the water molecules from any microscopic disease-causing organisms.
