Solution

  1. The electrolytic conductivity is the electrical conductance of unit volume (1 cm3) of solution. It depends on the number of current-carrying ions present in unit volume of solution.
  2. On dilution total number of ions increases as a result of an increased degree of dissociation.
  3. An increase in the total number of ions is not in the proportion of dilution. Therefore, the number of ions per unit volume of solution decreases.
  4. This results in a decrease of conductivity with a decrease in the concentration of the solution.
  Is there an error in this question or solution?
