# Dissociation vs solubility

Do you mean anomalous conductivity as conducting more than usual or less than usual?

More. As I told you earlier, conductivity of H+ is about order of magnitude higher than conductivity of other ions.

Maybe it was submerged in the long post
the point is that the mobility of H+ (and 0H-) is nearly an order of magnitude greater than that of anything else. Again the active not passive approach – if you had read ahead or even skimmed ahead in your textbook you would have seen this - and why.

The exceptional mobility of H+ I think is the answer to the question – but wait! What about the phosphate ion, Isn’t that slower and limiting the conductivity? Surprise...

OK, then. Thanks a lot for clearing this question up everyone. This helped a lot.

I think my issues here are resolved, and if you do not mind, I am marking this thread as solved.
