Choosing correct filter paper for extracting precipitate?

  1. Mar 1, 2018 #1
    I have about 100-250mL of liquid mixture containing precipitate of unknown particle size. Do I attempt a general 10-micron Whatman filter or smaller?

    Might as well give it a shot. If it doesn’t work, you can always filter it again with a finer filter.
