Make as many words as you can out of the word 'distillation'
Distillation is a process that can be used to separate a pure liquid from a mixture of liquids. It works when the liquids have different boiling points. Distillation is commonly used to separate ethanol - the alcohol in alcoholic drinks - from water.

The mixture is heated in a fl____. Ethanol has a lower b______ p___t than water so it _______tes first. The ethanol vapour is then cooled and c______sed inside the condenser to form a pure liquid. The ________eter shows the boiling point of the pure ethanol liquid. When all the _____nol has evaporated from the solution, the temperature rises and the water evaporates.
Because they have different boiling points, the substances in crude oil can be separated using fractional distillation. The crude oil is evaporated and its vapours allowed to condense at different temperatures in the fractionating column. Each fraction contains hydrocarbon molecules with a similar number of carbon atoms.
Fractional distillation is different from distillation because it separates a mixture into a number of different parts, called fractions. A tall column is fitted above the mixture, with several condensers coming off at different heights. The column is hot at the bottom and cool at the top. Substances with high boiling points condense at the bottom and substances with low boiling points condense at the top. Like distillation, fractional distillation works because the different substances in the mixture have different boiling points.
