Question:

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.

Electrolytes:

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.
