MCQs on Electrical Conductors, Arrhenius Theory and Ostwald's Dilution Law

Metal wires are used in electrical circuits because metal is a good conductor. An electrical conductor is a material that allows electricity to flow through it easily . Some types of material conduct electricity more easily than others. Arrhenius was the first scientist who gave an idea of formation of ions in solution. This ideal holds good for theory of acids and bases. Arrhenius theory also describes strong acid and weak acid. Ostwald’s Dilution Law is another well-known application of the law of mass action; the dilution law applies to dilute solutions . Ostwald published the results of his experimental tests of the expression.96 In experiments with over two hundred weak organic acids, he found values of k to remain constant over a wide range of dilute to moderate concentrations.
