Distilled water is free from electrolytes and hence doesn’t have any conducting substance in it.
Hence, it is not a good conductor of electricity.
We know that acids, bases and salts are good conductors.
Hence, we can make distilled water conducting by making it
- An acid
Distilled water can be made acidic by adding lemon juice (citric acid), vinegar (acetic acid) in it
- A base
Distilled water can be made basic by adding detergent, sodium hydroxide (NaOH) in it
- A salt solution
Distilled water can be made conducting by adding a salt like common salt (NaCl) in it
