Electrical Conductivity Of Liquids
1-The phenomenon of flow of current through liquids is known electrolysis.
2-The phenomenon of flow of electrons through solids is known as conduction.
3-The phenomenon of flow of electrons through gases is known as discharge.
4-Pure water does not allow the current to pass through most of the liquids which conduct electricity are solutions of acids, bases and salts.
5-The liquids which allow the current to pass through them are called electrolytes.
6-The container in which electrolysis takes place is known as voltmeter.
7-The chemical decomposition of an electrolyte when electricity is passed through it is known as electrolysis.
8-The mass of the ions deposited is directly proportional to strength of the current and time of flow.
9-The electrolysis is used in electroplating, electrotyping and metallurgy.
10-Electric current flows in metals by movements of electrons.
11-Electric current flows in metal solution by movement of ions.
12-Electroplating is used in ornamentation and decoration.
13-Good Conductors -The substances which allow the electricity to pass through them are called good conductors.Examples -Silver,Copper,Iron etc.
14-Poor Conductors-The substances which does not allow the electricity to pass through them are called poor conductors.Examples- Rubber,Wood,Plastic etc.
15-Electrodes-The plates in the liquids whose ends are connected to positive and negative terminals of the battery.
16-Electroplating-The process of coating of one metal with another material is called electroplating.
17-The flow of electrons is called electric current or the flow of charge through the conductor per unit time is called electric current.
18-The instrument which is used to check the flow of current is called tester.
19-The method of purification of metals by using electricity is called electro-refining.
20-The process of coating of iron and steel sheets with a layer of zinc is called galvanisation.
21-Air is insulator.
22-LED means Light Emitting Diode
23-LED light sources consume less electricity
