Q. 5

Conductivity of an electrolylic solution depends on ___________.
A. nature of electrolyte.

B. concentration of electrolyte.

C. area of cross section of the electrode.

D. distance between the electrodes.

Answer :

Conductivity of an electrolyte depends on :-

(i) Nature of electrolyte- The conductance of an electrolyte depends upon the number of ions present in the solution. Therefore, the greater the number of ions in the solution the greater is the conductance. The number of ions produced by an electrolyte depends upon its nature.


(ii) Concentration of electrolyte- The conductance of an electrolyte varies with the concentration of the electrolyte. In general, conductance increases with decrease in concentration or increase in dilution.
