The conductance is defined as the current flow through the conductor. In other words, it is defined as the reciprocal of the resistance. This method is mainly used for the determination of the physico-chemical properties of the compounds. The movement of the ions is mainly depended on the concentration of the ions.

In that various characteristic like quality control, pollution control, process monitoring and managing require performing conductivity measurement regularly.

Conductivity is the measure of the ability of the material to carry out electrical current. Conductivity measurement of the sample solution provides the degree of electrical conductivity in the definite quantity of the solution. The electrical conductivity of the solution is similar to the number of ions available in it and therefore the conductivity measurement of a solution will give a reading of the solution.

The principle by which the system measures the conductivity is simple. There are two conductivity plates are situated in the sample and potentially apply to them usually ac voltage and after that, the current is measured. By voltage and current values, conductivity can be determined.

Constant specific conductivity can be determined to multiply the conductivity by electrode cell. By considering the temperature coefficient of the sample with the modern conductivity meter, this change can be remunerated automatically or manually. For accurate conduct measurement, automatic temperature compensation ATC with different temperature sensor is required and the standard and sample must be measured at the same temperature.

Conductivity is also used for determining the total dissolved solids TDS and salinity. You may also like this.


Conductometric Titration

Vreeland oscillator by Taylor and Acree. When electical potential is applied across electrodes two process occurs. Ions accumulate near the electrodes. Transfer of charge through the interface. Note : DC current is not employed in conductance measurement because Electrodes becomes polarised leading to high cell resistance.

Conductometry is a measurement of electrolytic conductivity to monitor a progress of chemical reaction. Conductometry has notable application in analytical chemistry , where conductometric titration is a standard technique. In usual analytical chemistry practice, the term conductometry is used as a synonym of conductometric titration, while the term conductimetry is used to describe non-titrative applications. It was also around this time when Willis Whitney, who was studying the interactions of sulfuric acid and chromium sulfate complexes, found the first conductometric endpoint. Conductometry was further improved with the development of the glass electrode, which began in The equivalence point is the point at which the conductivity undergoes a sudden change.
