# Need help understanding conductivity watch

1. Using a conductivity probe I have measured the conductance of a solution of hydrochloric acid for every cm3 of equal concentration sodium hydroxide added. I now need to find what the pattern of the conductance of the solution theoretically should be by calculation.

I have the concentrations of the H+, Cl-, Na+ and Cl- ions for every cm3 of sodium hydroxide added.

Conductivity is an alien subject to me and I was wondering how would I find the conductivity of the solution for each cm3 of sodium hydroxide added?
Cheers
2. Do you mean conductance or conductivity?
Conductance is just 1/R (inverse resistance).
You can find the resistance or conductance of the solution by measuring I (current) and V (pd) and using R = V/I or conductance = I/V

I meant conductivity, sorry didn't realise there was a difference

I remember a thread from some time ago that was similar to this.
Does this help. I think there is a confusion in terminology.
