Which of the two is a better conductor of electricity: drinking water (tap water) or sea water? Give reason for your answer.

Answer :

Sea water is a better conductor because it contains sodium and chloride ions in large amounts. These ions make the solution conducting and thus, sea water is considered better conductor than the tap water which does not contain ions in large amounts.
