Exploring Fundamental Concepts in Aqueous Solution Conductivity: A General Chemistry Laboratory Exercise
Nyasulu, Frazier; Stevanov, Kelly; Barlag, Rebecca
Journal of Chemical Education, v87 n12 p1364-1366 Dec 2010
Using a conductivity sensor, a temperature sensor, and a datalogger, fundamental factors that affect conductivity are explored. These factors are (i) concentration, (ii) temperature, (iii) ion charge, and (iv) size and or mass of anion. In addition, the conductivities of a number of other solutions are measured. This lab has been designed to provide students opportunities to construct knowledge. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
