Updated on 03/31/2014

Activity Overview

In this lesson, students will use a conductivity probe to measure conductivity and determine which molecules are responsible for conductivity of solutions.

Objectives

  • Write equations for the dissociation of compounds in water.
  • Use a Conductivity Probe to measure the conductivity of solutions.
  • Determine which molecules or ions are responsible for conductivity of solutions.
  • Investigate the conductivity of solutions resulting from compounds that dissociate to produce different numbers of ions.
