NEET Questions Solved

An increase in equivalent conductance of a strong electrolyte with dilution is mainly due to

(a) increase in ionic mobility of ions

(b) 100% ionisation of electrolyte at normal dilution

(c) increase in both, i.e. number of ions and ionic mobility of ions

(d) increase in number of ions

(a) λeq = k × V = k × 1000Normality

On dilution, the number of current carrying particles per cm3 decreases but the volume of solution increases. Consequently, the ionic mobility increases, which in turn increases the equivalent conductance of strong electrolyte.
