This is a pretty basic question, and I know it has something to do with conductivity, but I'm not quite sure how they are related.

• @jakekimds The value of $\mathrm{p}K_\mathrm{a}$ does decrease with increasing temperature, yes. But, this means that the proper ionization constant, $K_\mathrm{a}$, increases with increasing temperature. – hBy2Py Jan 31 '17 at 3:58
