    Explain why, distilled water does not conduct electricity but tap water conducts some electricity.

    Open in App Solution

    Salts dissociates into ions when electricity passed through it which are responsible for the electricity conductivity of tap water. But distilled water does not contain any dissolved salts, so it does not conduct electricity.

    The water that we get from different sources, such as taps, hand pumps, wells and ponds is not pure. It may contains several salt dissolved in it. This water is thus good conductor of electricity. Distilled water is free of salt due to which it is a poor conductor.

    Why is tap water a very good conductor of electricity and not distilled water?

    Answer (1 of 9): Tap water conducts electricity since there are small amounts of calcium and magnesium salts dissolved in it, pure water ( distilled or deionised) has nothing at all in it that can conduct electricity.

    Originally Answered: Why water is a very good conductor of electric I and NOT the distilled water?

    Water itself isn't a conductor. However, once you dissolve ionic compounds into it, such as salts, the ions become loosely-bound to each other. Applying a voltage easily breaks the bonds and the electrodes attract ions of opposite charge. Basically, the compound is subjected to electrolysis. Current begins to flow and the charge carriers are the ions themselves, not electrons as in a metallic conductor.

    So there's nothing special about distilled water that makes it insulating, that's more of a default behavior. It's impure water that exhibits conductivity due to the presence of the impurities.

    Why is tap water a good conductor of electricity whereas distilled water is a poor conductor of electricity?

    Compounds which dissociate in an aqueous medium result in mobile entities with a positive or negative ionic charge. Simplistically H+ or OH- gather around the dissociated compounds according to charge. These entities respond to an applied potential by moving to the opposite charge pole. Their movement is that ‘conduction’.

    Distilled water has none or virtually none of those dissolved ‘contaminants’, so most of the H2O stays as H2O.

    Why is tap water more conductive than distilled?

    Tap water contains small quantities of salts. And salt solution is conductive.

    Not only distilled water, there is another process of reducing the electrical conductivity of water and that is called demineralization (DM). Using ion exchange process, the dissolved salts of the water are removed. This is more energy efficient and is used in industries that need DM water for their processes including cleaning of some critical components for the nuclear industry.

    Your RO water purifier is a DM water unit, in the sense of removing the dissolved salts in the water - especially if the taste maker usuall

    Originally Answered: Why is tap water a very good conductor of electricity and NOT distilled water?

    Tap water has lots of ions that help conduct - usually very small amounts of sodium or potassium - way less than enough to change the taste. Truly distilled water has all the ions supposedly removed so there is basically no carriers for current. Hence, high resistance.

    To prove this drop a tiny bit of salt into a small amount of distilled water, stir until disloved and watch the resistance go way down while you stir it.

    Why is tap water more conductive than distilled?

    Because, tap water contains more salts. And you know it very well that salts are ionic and hence, can conduct electricity.

    While distillation removes maximum salts and so, electricity can't pass through distilled water.
