Solution A, a 1.0 M aqueous ionic solution which contains one cation and one anion, shows a conductivity reading of 7000 microsiemens/cm.
Solution B, antoher 1.0 M aqueous ionic solution containing an unknown number of cations and anions, shows a conductivity reading of 12000 microsiemens/cm.
What can you say about the relative number of ions in the Solution B as compared to Solution A? Explain your reasoning.
An strong electrolyte solution has conductivity due to cations and anions in solution. If the number of ions in an electrolyte solution increases, then the conductivity increases as well.
