Homework Help: Seperating potassium sulfate and mercurous sulfate

  1. Feb 14, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    How would you separate a mixture of potassium sulfate and mercurous sulfate solids?
    Be sure to indicate how you got two separate solids.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know that the mercurous sulfate is insoluble, so my first thought would be to dissolve the potassium sulfate in water and that would sepererate them. However I could not think of how to return the dissolved potassium sulfate back to its solid form.
