# Conductivity in a solution

According to this Periodic Table (sorted by conductivity), sodium's conductivity is .21 on the chart, and Iron's is 0.0993 (approx 2.1 * Fe = Na).

So.... if I make a sodium solution at 1000 PPM and an iron solution at 2100 PPM, shouldn't the conductivity of the two solutions be approximately equal?

[EDIT] Arrgh never mind, I was thinking NaCl instead of pure sodium...
