Write a brief note about the conductivity of water.

Expert Answer:

Pure water is a non-conductor of electricity because it does not form ions. Water containing dissolved impurities, such as salt and gases, forms ions and conducts electricity. Water can be decomposed by the passing of electric current. This process is called electrolysis.
