## What is the relation between conductivity and equivalent conductivity?

Equivalent Conductivity is defined as the conducting power of all the ions produced by dissolving one gram equivalent of an electrolyte in solution. Specific conductivity is the measure of the ability of that material to conduct electricity.

### Is equivalent conductance and conductivity same?

Equivalent conductivity (Λ): The conductance of that volume of solution containing one equivalent of an electrolyte is known as equivalent conductivity. It is denoted by Λ. Let us consider the V cm3 of solution containing one equivalent of an electrolyte. Its conductance is equal to equivalent conductance, Λ.

#### What is equivalent conductance?

The equivalent conductance of an electrolyte is defined as the conductance of a volume of solution containing one equivalent weight of dissolved substance when placed between two parallel electrodes 1 cm apart, and large enough to contain between them all of the solution.

**What is formula of equivalent conductance?**

Equivalent conductance is defined as the conductance of all the ions produced by one gram equivalent of an electrolyte in a given solution. Equivalent conductance λ = k × V Where V is the volume in mL containing 1 g equivalent of the electrolyte.

**What is equivalent conductance and specific conductance?**

The equivalent conductance of an electrolyte is defined as the conductance of a volume of solution containing one equivalent weight of dissolved substance when placed between two parallel electrodes 1 cm apart and large enough to contain between then all of the solution.

## What is the relationship between conductance and specific conductance?

Specific Conductance is the ability of a substance to conduct electricity. It is the reciprocal of specific resistance. Conductance means the flow of current through the liquid conductor.

### Which of the following relation is correct for molar conductance and equivalent conductance?

Answer: Molar conductance = conductivity x concentration.

#### What is the difference between specific and equivalent conductance?

Specific Conductance or conductivity is the conductance of a given solution enclosed in a cell having two electrodes of unit area and are separated by 1cm. While Equivalent Conductance is also a specific case but a little different than that of the previous one.

**What is equivalent conductance with example?**

For example, If salt is dissolved in water then the conductivity of the salt solution is the sum of the conductances of the anions and cations(in solution). Λeqo = Equivalent Conductivity at infinite dilution.

**How is equivalent conductivity related with normality of solution?**

Now, to relate this equation with gm equivalent(as defined for gm equivalent), we know that Normality= No. of gm equivalents/Volume(in lit). As we have considered a solution containing 1 gm-equivalent. Thus, Equivalent Conductance(Λ)= Equivalent Conductivity(k)*1000/Normality.

## What is conductance and specific conductance?

Conductance means the flow of current through the liquid conductor. Specific conductance is defined as the conducting capacity of a solution of the dissolved electrolyte and the whole solution is being placed between two electrodes are 1 sq. cm and length 1 cm. Also, read more about Molar Conductance, here.

### What is difference between equivalent conductance and molar conductance?

The key difference between equivalent conductance and molar conductance is that equivalent conductance is the conductance of an electrolyte that is divided by the number of equivalents of the electrolyte per unit volume, whereas molar conductance is the conductance of an electrolyte divided by the number of moles of …
