Question

Question 10

Paheli had heard that rain water is as good as distilled water. So, she collected some rain water in a clean glass tumbler and tested it using a tester. To her surprise, she found that the compass needle showed deflection. What could be the reasons?


Solution

Rainwater contains dissolved salts. This makes it a conducting solution. There are no dissolved salts present in the distilled water. Hence, rainwater can allow electricity to pass through it while distilled water cannot.
