Distillation of Water
Distillation is simply the most effective and reliable method of producing pure drinking water. It has been an essential part of nature since the earth began. The heat of the sun evaporates water from the earth's surface into the atmosphere, leaving impurities behind. As the vapor cools, it condenses and falls back to the earth as rain, snow or other forms of precipitation.
Material and instructions
Make a water distillation unit. Make some distilled water. Investigate water distillation to answer the following questions. What are the properties of distilled water? How much solids exists in ocean water? What is the cost of water distillation? What are the hazards of using distilled water as drinking water? Can you make a solar water distiller?
