Different components of a mixture are separated in order to either separate the un-required components from a mixture or sometimes, to separate more than one useful components from a mixture.

For example, grain purchased from shops can contain several impurities such as pieces of stone, husk, broken grains, etc. Thus, grain is separated from these impurities to make it edible.

Similarly, after preparing tea, we strain it to remove the used tea leaves from tea.

A mixture may contain one or more unwanted substances which may be harmful. These impurities are harmful for our health so, we need to separate different components of a mixture. Examples: Pebbles are separated from rice and pulse. Petrol, diesel, kerosene, etc. are obtained from crude oil by a method called distillation

We need to separate different components of mixture to
  1. Separate 2 different but useful components
  2. Remove non useful components
Remove impurities or harmful components.
Example :- 1) Seperate stone from rice
                2) Seperate tea leaves from tea.
