    table salt + table sugar

    how do you distinguish between table sugar dissolving in water and table salt dissolving in water? as far as i know, they're both polar substances....and will dissolve in water pretty well.

    Maybe at different temperature one disvolves well and the other does not.

    i'm so rusty on chemistry it's not funny. but TPH is on to something. We can use fractional distillation to separate them based on the different boiling points between salt solution and sugar solution...i think
