Usually within an atom, the protons and electrons are equal to make the atom have a neutral charge.
However, there are cases in which the protons and electrons are different, such as Cations and Anions. Cations end up having a positive charge (less electrons than protons), and Anions end up having a negative charge (more electrons than protons).
Explanation: you will find that the water and the soil are polar opposite, while the principal component of the water are Hydrogen and Oxygen, in the acetone you will find a change of carbon, the components from each molecule confer to each one specific physical properties for example the boiling point, and the distillation is a physical separation based on the boiling point.
then you can find the boiling point of the water in 100 °C, and the boiling point of the acetone is 56 °C, this give as a difference of 44 °C,
then while the acetone is boiling the water is liquid state, and this give us the opportunity to the separate the acetone in gas state by condensation after the boiling.
