chapter 5 electrochemistry class 12 chemistry textbook solution

3. Answer the following in brief

i. Explain the effect of dilution of solution on conductivity ?


  1. Electrolytic conductivity refers to the electrical conductance of a specific volume (1 cm³) of a solution.
  2. ) This conductivity is influenced by the presence of current-carrying ions within that volume.
  3. When a solution is diluted, the total number of ions increases due to a higher degree of dissociation of solute particles.
  4. However, this increase in the number of ions does not occur proportionally to the dilution. Consequently, the concentration of ions per unit volume of the solution decreases.
  5. This decrease in ion concentration leads to a reduction in conductivity as the solution becomes more dilute.
