Problem 45E

How might water be desalinated by freezing?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 45E Step 1 : Here we need to explain how can we desalin water by freezing it Step 2 : Desalination is a process of removing saline particles from water by freezing and producing fresh water In this process we consider the ice crystals, these ice crystals are made of pure water and saline So we first the reduce the temperature the saline water by freezing it Heat from frozen saline water is further more removed In nature , it is seen that the crystalline structure are excluded from the impurities , as the crystal keep growing In this process the freezing method utilizes the phase change from liquid to solid That is the ice crystals are separated from brine And the ice crystals are cleaned by removing the adhering salts on the crystal surface Then these crystals are melted to produce fresh water
