Does pure water conduct electricity? If not, what can we do to make it conducting?

 

Answer

Pure water or distilled water does not conduct electricity because it doesn’t contain salts in it.

To make it conducting, we add a pinch of common salt since salt solutions are good conductors of electricity.
