Why does specific conductivity decrease with dilution

Expert Answer:

The higher the concentration of ions in solution, the higher will be its conductivity.

Therefore, concentrated solutions will have the higher number of ions and hence higher conductivity. Whereas, diluted solutions will have lesser number of ions and hence, low specific conductivity.
