Specific conductance at 25 degrees Celsius

Overview

Specific conductance is a measure of the capacity of water to conduct an electrical current and is a function of the types and quantities of dissolved ions in water. As concentrations of dissolved ions increase, specific conductance of the water increases. Temperature also strongly affects the electrical conductivity of water; specific conductance compensates for this by normalizing measurements to what they likely would be if the water were 25 degrees Celsius.
