Example text

It should be clearly understood that although the current is carried through the metallic part of the circuit by the flow of electrons, it is carried through the electrolyte by the ions; the positive ions move in one direction and the negative ions in the opposite direction, the total charge of the moving ions being equivalent to the This aspect of the subject of electrolytic conduction flow of electrons. will be considered more fully in Chap. IV. Equations involving electron transfer, such as those given above, are frequently employed in electrochemistry to represent processes occurring at electrodes, either during electrolysis or in a voltaic cell capable of producing current.

432, 1326 (1937). ELECTROLYTIC CONDUCTANCE 38 highest electrolytic resistances which can be measured with accuracy, taking advantage of the properties of the vacuum-tube audio-amplifier, In order to measure low resistances the polariare about 50,000 ohms. zation P should be reduced by adequate platinization of the electrodes, but there is a limit to which this can be carried and experiments show that resistances below 1,000 ohms cannot be measured accurately. The resistances which can be determined in a given cell, therefore, cover a The observed specific conductances of electroratio of about 50 to unity.

If the solution being studied is one of a strong acid of concentration 4 greater than 10" N, the ionization of the weak carbonic acid is depressed to such an extent that its contribution towards the total conductance is In these circumstances no water correction is necessary; at negligible. " at from be the If subtracted total. the conordinary temperatures, may centration of the strong acid is less than 10~ 4 N, a small correction is necessary and its magnitude may be calculated from the dissociation constant of carbonic acid.
