What are some ways to desalinate ocean water?

1 Answer

There are two ways to desalinate ocean water:

Distillation : The solution of water and salt is heated to the boiling point. Then the steam is collected in another pot or something that will be the pure water.


Reverse Osmosis : A semi-permeable membrane is a membrane which only allows solvent to pass through it. Here, water is the solvent and salt is the solute. Adding pressure to one side let water pass through it and leaving salt behind.
