Nhi Vu General Chemistry Agnes Rafoulko Electrolytes Introduction: Electrolytes are substances that permit passage of an electrical current through water. In this experiment, we will be testing the electric conductivity of various solutions by using the light bulb method. Chemical Responsibility: There is a hazard of electrical shock in this experiment. Thus, we must carefully follow Agnes’s instructions when handling the apparatus. Specifically, we must not touch any parts of the apparatus that may carry the electrical current. Also, we must safety goggles at all times. Report Sheet: Materials : Electrical conductivity apparatus Various chemicals Procedures : 1. Dip the electrodes into the various solutions. The extent to which the light bulb glows indicates the conductivity of the solution. If the bulb glows brightly, the solution is a strong conductor. If the bulb glows dimly, the solution is a poor conductor. If it does not glow at all, the solution is a nonconductor. 2.
