Conductivity Pack   Home / SmartQ Sensors  

The Conductivity pack is both the Conductivity adapter (3135) and the Conductivity electrode (3136).

This sensor can be set to any of four ranges enabling accurate measurements from very low ionic sources such as deionised or distilled water to very highly conductive solutions including sea water.

Chemistry
Chemistry:
  • Titrations of strong versus weak acids
  • Electrolytes and Non-electrolytes
  • Finding the equivalence point
  • Difference between ionic and molecular compounds
Biology:
  • Diffusion of ions through a membrane
 

Environmental
Environmental:
  • Environmental testing for salinity, total dissolved solids or general conductivity in water samples
 

The electrode incorporates an in-built temperature sensor that is used to compensate for changes in the conductivity of solutions with temperature.

The electrode should be kept clean and free of deposits and should therefore be washed between samples, and after use to prevent build up on the graphite plates.

43 Barium hydroxide conductivity titration (Chemistry (14-18) eBook)
The reaction between barium hydroxide and sulphuric acid produces a precipitate of barium sulphate. the creation of the precipitate alters the conductance of the reaction mixture giving a good alternative titration practical.
