Separation of common salt and sand from a mixture involves the processes of filtration, followed by evaporation.

Sand can be separated from a mixture of sand and salt solution (salt dissolved in water) by filtration. After filtration, sand remains on the filter paper as a residue. Common salt can now be obtained from the filtrate by boiling it. Boiling causes all the water to evaporate and salt is left behind. This process is called evaporation.
