Electrolytic conductance, specific, equivalent and molar conductance,
The flow of electric current through an electrolytic solution is known as electrolytic conduction.
Electrolytic conduction also follows Ohm's law.
V = I/R
R = ρ* l/a
ρ is called specific resistance.
The reciprocal of specific resistance is termed specific conductance. It may be defined as the conductance of a solution of 1 cm length and having 1 sq.cm as the area of cross section.
Specific conductance is the conductance of one centimetre cube of a solution of an electrolyte. It is denoted by k (kappa)
κ = 1/ρ
The equivalent conductivity of an electrolyte may be defined as the conductance of a volume of solution containing one equivalent mass of a dissolved substance when placed between two parallel electrodes which are at a unit distance apart, and large enough to contain between them the whole solution.
The molar conductivity of a solution gives the conducting power of ions produced by one molar mass of an electrolyte at any particular concentration.
It is denoted by Λm (Lambda).
Λm = κ/M
where M is the molar concentration
