ABSTRACT
In this communication an attempt has been made to review in brief on passive solar distillation. The review includes the historical background, passive solar distillation and classification of solar still. The heat transfer modes responsible for the analysis of various design of solar stills have been discussed.

    Most rain comes from the sea. About 208 cubic miles of water evaporates from the world's oceans every day, to fall down as rain. But the sea is salty and rainwater is fresh. To observe how evaporation and condensation can purify salt water, a solar still can be built using a clean jar with a...
