Answer :

Molar conductivity of a solution at a given concentration is the conductance of volume V of a solution containing one mole of electrolyte kept between two electrodes with an area of cross section A and distance of unit length.

Molar conductivity, Λm= or Λm= κV


where


κ is the conductivity


A is the area of cross-section and


l is the distance between the electrodes.


For weak electrolytes the number of ions increases and the degree of dissociation increases with dilution and the increase is drastic. Hence, A has to be a weak electrolyte whereas B has to be a strong electrolyte because for strong electrolytes the number of ions does not change, but interionic distance decreases and therefore the increase is gradual.


Thus, electrolyte B is strong as on dilution the number of ions remains the same, only interionic attraction decreases; therefore, the increase in Λm is small.
