Question: How Conductive is a Can of Soda?

Conductivity, or the degree to which specified material conducts electricity, can be measured in many different ways. In a laboratory or professional setting this is usually done with very expensive and complicated machines designed for this purpose.

But what about you as a student or hobbyist? What do you do if you want to learn about conductivity without spending thousands of dollars on equipment? You keep reading this, because you are in the right place to learn more about conduction and how you can do your own experiments on various liquids to measure their conductivity.

At The Science Shop we pride ourselves on helping people learn more about science, chemistry, biology, and many more subjects. That's why we are pleased to offer you the Conduction Experiment Kit. This engaging kit is very simple to use, but very effective at teaching. Through the use of a light bulb and how brightly it shines when its power source is run through different liquids, you can learn which liquids have high conductivity, and which do not. 

We hope you enjoy this kit as much as we do! Click Here to view this item on our online store.
