yes isotope can be separated by physical means.
Most elements are mixtures, not pure substances, since they consist of mixtures of isotopes that can be separated into pure substances (individual isotopes) by physical means such as diffusion or mass spectrometry. ... Some isotopes can be separated from each other by chemical means.

Yes it can. Most elements are mixtures, not pure substances, since they consist of mixtures of isotopes that can be separated into pure substances (individual isotopes) by physical means such as diffusion or mass spectrometry. One example is the separation of hydrogen-2 from hydrogen-1 by fractional distillation of hydrogen.

Isotope has thesame protons and thesame chemical properties with different physical properties.
So i think i will agree that yes they can be seperated by their physical properties.
