In what way does adding an impurity like salt affect the conductivity of pure water?

Asked by Topperlearning User 22nd December 2013, 10:50 AM
Answered by Expert
Pure water does not form enough ions to conduct electricity that is why pure water is a poor conductor of electricity. By adding salt, it forms ions of sodium and chloride which makes it possible for an electric current to pass through the solution.
