Abstract : The electrical conductivity of aqueous KCl solutions has been measured over the concentration range 0.03 to 4.0M, the temperature range -8 to +20C, and at pressures up to 4,000 kg/sq. cm. The effect of these variables on conductivity are similar to their effect on viscosity - generally speaking they all tend to destroy the regions of structure in water and cause water to behave more like a 'normal' liquid. Inasmuch as their effects are similar, the operancy of one variable tends to diminish the relative effectiveness of a second. Thus increasing the temperature or adding electrolyte tends to smear out the anomalous minimum in the pressure-dependence of the relative viscosity or the anomalous maximum in the pressure-dependence of the relative conductance.
