Experiment B1
Physical Chemistry of Solutions

Measuring electrolyte cnductivity

Measuring electrolyte conductivity.

As the title suggests, this experiment investigates the different properties of solutions. Activities in this experiment include crystal growing, supersaturation, electrolyte conductivity measurements, colligative properties, osmosis using dialysis tubing, and diffusion using salt, sugar, and instant coffee solutions.
