Limiting conductivity

  1. Mar 24, 2010 #1
    Why is the limiting conductivity of a weak electrolyte higher than the one for a strong electrolyte?
    ex: KCl = 149 Scm2/mol HAc = 391 Scm2/mol

    It is not a general rule - compare HCl with HAc.

    This comparison is also a hint why there is so large difference between limiting conductivities of substances you have listed.
