Desalination is the process of removing salt from seawater to make fresh water safe for drinking.
Many countries are using desalination as a way of creating a more reliable water supply that doesn't depend on rain. Desalination produces drinking water and concentrate (the water that contains the salts that were removed in the desalination process, which is sometimes called brine).
Building a miniature, working model of a desalination system, we can find out about the different variables that affect the system and what the prime variables are in order to collect the most amount of water.
Possible research questions
1) How does the angle of the pipes affect the amount of water collected?
2) How does the flow rate of the water (In) through the pipes affect the amount of water collected?
3)How does the amount of heat applied to the salt water affect the amount of water collected?
