Influence on the electrical conductivity of solutions:
- types of substances dissolved
- concentration of solutes
- temperature

Depends on the material you're talking about. For metals, conductivity is inversely proportional to temperature. For semi-metals, conductivity is directly proportional to temperature.

The presence of impurities and alloying elements decrease the electrical conductivity of most of the metals.. Hence thereby the alloying of metals increase the resistivity of metals and decrease its electrical conductivity.. But rarely.,, certain magnetic alloys increase its conductivity.

The more electrolytes in solution the higher the conductivity.

Generally speaking conductivity of metals decreases as the temperature increases.

Wires are made of copper becauseit has high electrical conductivity so it can conduct electricity wellit has high melting point so it will not melt under the heating effect of electric currentit is soft and ductile, thus can be drawn into wiresit is relatively cheap compared to silver, which is the one metal that has higher electrical conductivity than copper

Thermal conductivity is an intensive property. It is inherent in the material but not dependent on the amount of material. This should not be confused with the rate of heat conduction which can depend on the dimensions of a material. There is one case where the thermal conductivity might depend on the dimension of the material - when the conductivity is not uniform with direction, i.e. where conductivity laterally is different from conductivity longitudinally. When the orientation of the material changes the conductivity, the dimensions can have an effect on the apparent bulk thermal conductivity.

Salts can improve the conductivity of water, forming an electrolyte.

No, this effect is for Colloidal solutions only.

The Meissner effect refers to the expulsion of magnetic flux when a material becomes superconducting in a magnetic field. A material that shows perfect conductivity is called a superconductor.

This family of alloys, which consists of copper and zinc is brass. The conductivity of brass is a function of the amount of zinc in the copper/zinc mix. The chart below delineates the conductivity of brass as a function of zinc content.Figure 2. Effect of Zinc Content on the Electrical Conductivity of BrassCopper-30% zinc is a good starting place when selecting copper alloys for strength and formability. This is also a good "home base" when selecting alloys for conductivity. Designers can often use their experience with copper-30% zinc to estimate just how much more conductivity they must have in a given application. If only twenty percent more is needed, then a metal with a conductivity equal to 34% IACS is required. If twice the conductivity of copper-30% zinc is needed, only copper-5% zinc will be useful among the brasses, and its lower zinc content means a sacrifice in strength. There are a number of alternate alloys to consider in such a case, from the Coppers, High Coppers, and Bronzes.

The following solutions need to be given to know what the effect is. Without knowing this the answer will not be able to be known.

The Tyndall effect is an effect of light through a substance that has particles suspended. Solutions on their own don't have these particles, but colloidal suspensions are particles suspended within a solution and thus can display the Tyndall effect.

Mobile solutions are solutions to electronic problems. Mobile solutions can help solve with every day problems that people encounter. There are companies also called Mobile Solutions.

Type your answer here... conductivity is decreases with temp

No. The Tyndall effect can be shown in colloids and suspensions but not solutions.

Electrons of metals are very loosely bound and tend to "float" among the various atoms. This causes the high electrical conductivity of metals. This bond is called a metallic bond.

The Tyndall effect is specific for colloids, not for solutions.

Supply voltage , temperature , frequency are factors that effect the electrical parameters of opamp

yes temperature affects the conductivity of conductor and semi conductors but in case of insulators temp. has no effect. While we talk about conductors as temp. increases conductivity decreases ,the question is why, look if we take an example of copper the conductivity is so high at normal temperature because the molecules in the copper are so close but when we increase temperature the inter molecule distance increases and result is increasing resistance of the copper, and as we know that resistance is inversely proportional to the conductivity. So in the case of conductor, temperature affects the conductivity. Hey may be you are familiarize with the new aspect called superconductivity, the same effect is here while the temperature of a conductor is so low approximately -273degree the conductor becomes superconductor because Resistance become so low (can say approx. 0 but not exact 0). You should know that most metals increase their electrical resistivity by about 0.005 per degree. Good luck Rjames007

The conductivity of semiconductors increases with an increase in temperature as the breakdown of covalent bonds take place in the semiconductor. If the temperature keeps rising it may result in damage to the semiconductor with a decrease in conductivity.
