Abstract : The Arrhenius activation energy of the electrical conduction of aqueous 0.10M KCl solution remains unchanged when a thickening agent such as polyvinylmethel ether or a drag-reducing agent such as polyethylene oxide is added, indicating that these agents, in the small amounts added, probably do not appreciably alter the structure of liquid water.
