Michael Patino 01115539 Chem 1122-Trupta Experiment 9- Building a Conductivity Detector and Testing for Ions Objective / Aim of the lab- The objective of this lab is to introduce the presence of ions in a range of liquids by building a simple electrical conductivity detector and then placing it into test for Ions. An Ionic bond is when a metal and non-metal have 2 oppositely charged ions. For example, Na (+) Cl (-). Ions are a crucially important type of chemical substance, and are present in every common liquid that contains H20. Introduction/background information- Ions consist of chemical substances that contain separate electrically charged particles. When ions are present, there are equal amounts of positive and negative charged ions. While ions are present, the solution will conduct electricity. The magnitude or range of this conductance is directly proportional to the concentration of ionic substances dissolved in a liquid. The way this experiment worked was the device we used allowed us to indicate whether a solution can
