Wazeer EXP # 2 CONDUCTIVITY OF STRONG & WEAK ELECTROLYTES DONE BY: A l-Khateeb .Waleed ID#: 914907 SEC.#: 56 Date Of Performance: 30-9-1996 Date Of Submission: 7-10-1996 INTRODUCTION I-Objective :-- To obtain the electrical conductivity of KCl and acetic acid solutions.- Finding out the limiting conductivity for the two solutions.- To find the dissociation constant of acetic acid. II-Theory :- Some substances that dissociate into ions by some suitable solvents can conduct electricity. Therefore, the conductance of these solutions depends on the degree of dissociation and the concentration of ions. The electrical conductivity, k , is the conductance of a unit cube of a solution which is contained between two parallel electrodes 1 cm square and 1 cm apart. For particular case of a solution of an electrolyte, it known as the electrolytic conductivity and it can be found by: k G l A = (1) Where, G = the conductance, S l = the length of material, cm A = the cross-sectional area, cm 2 K = the electrical conductivity, S cm The molar conductivity, , can be defined as, = k c / (2) The importance of the molar conductivity is that it gives information about the conductivity of the ions produced in solution by 1 mol of a substance.the conductivity of the ions produced in solution by 1 mol of a substance....
