# Distillation

Distillation is the separation of a solution by vaporising and condensing.

There are two ways you can remember this:

1) Still is in the name 'distillation' (THIS STILL) and a still is what they use in distillation.

2) Separation of a mixed solution by vaporising and condensing.

This is the case until heat is applied, which causes everything to separate (separation).
