Pure water does not conduct electricity. It is an insulator that has a high resistance and a low conductivity. Electrical current does not move through water easily. More »

Water can easily conduct electricity if it contains ionic compounds, but pure water does not conduct electricity. Pure water is rarely found in nature, therefore the majority of water found on Earth does conduct electric... More »

Water conducts electricity because it contains dissolved matter, such as minerals and chemicals, with charged ions. Electricity seeks out oppositely charged particles to travel through. More »

Semiconductors are substances that conduct electricity only under certain conditions. Germanium, Silicon and sometimes tin are types of semiconductors that occur naturally and do not require chemical doping to form cryst... More »

Ionic compounds conduct electricity when they are dissociated into positive and negative ions that are free to move. The larger the number of mobile positive and negative ions, the more conductive the ionic material beco... More »

According to the California Science Center, lemon juice can both conduct and produce electricity. Lemon juice contains citric acid, which is a strong electrolyte. The electrolytes in lemon produce electricity by allowing... More »

Although many people think water conducts electricity well, pure water is a poor conductor since its molecules do not have free electrons to travel and thus transfer current. Pure water, however, rarely exists in nature.... More »
