Question

Why conductivity of an electrolyte solution decreases with the decrease in concentration ?

Solution

The conductivity of an electrolyte solution is the conductance of ions present in a unit volume of the solution. The number of ions (responsible for carrying current) decreases when the solution is diluted or the concentration is decreased. As a result, the conductivity of an electrolyte solution decreases with the decrease in concentration.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
Solution Why Conductivity of an Electrolyte Solution Decreases with the Decrease in Concentration ? Concept: Conductance of Electrolytic Solutions - Variation of Conductivity and Molar Conductivity with Concentration.
