of course...salt water being fresh water loaded with disolved minerals.

Physical separation by means of boiling (evaporation) the salt water and condensing the resulting freshwater vapor. The physical properties (reaction to temperature changes) of water permits this.

Hope this helps you

Arrow No, That's Not Right

I don't think you can get fresh water from salt water unless you have purified it.
