The conductivity of a solution depends on the type and quantity of the dissolved ions. Every type of ion has a specific conductivity κ, which is the reciprocal of the specific resistance ς. The conductivity depends on the length of the conductor (electrode distance) l and on the cross-sectional area of the electrodes q according to the following formula:

Experiment C4.4.1.3 determines the specific conductivity of tap water. The effect of electrode distance on conductivity can also be investigated.
