Dear experts pls answer this question on centrifugation

What is centrifugation in separation of mixtures ? Draw a suitable diagram

Dear student,
Centrifugation is a method in which solid or liquid particles of different densities are separated by rotating them in the tube in a horizontal circle. The heavier suspended particles move down and lighter particles remain on top. In this method, the mixture is rotated at a high speed in a test tube in a machine called a centrifuge. For eg: to separate cream from milk.
 
Regards!

Centrifugation?is the separation process that relies on the action of centrifugal force to separate particles in a solid?liquid mixture into two distinct phases consisting of the sediment and centrifugate (also called supernatant liquid)

Centrifugation is a process in which the substance with higher density stays at the bottom whereas the substance with lower density remains at the top.
