Short Note

In the plot of molar conductivity (∧_{m}) vs square root of concentration (c^{1/2}), following curves are obtained for two electrolytes A and B:

**Answer the following:****(i) **Predict the nature of electrolytes A and B.**(ii)** What happens on extrapolation of ∧_{m} to concentration approaching zero for electrolytes A and B?

#### Solution

**(i) **

A = Strong electrolyte

B = Weak electrolyte

**(ii)** On extrapolation of these graphs they cut the Y-axis it means concentration is approaching zero and at that point, we will say infinite dilution of their respective A and B.

When A and B cut on Y-axis then we will say molar conductivity of A and B at infinite dilution.
