The textbook says,
The smaller the effective size of the ion after solvation, the greater will be its conducting power."
But, on the Internet, it is explained as follows:
Radius decreases, smaller ions carrying current in small area, more associations with anions & due to this, the ions become heavy & they move with reduced speed as compared to less associated ones, & thus conductivity decreases.
The explanation is different to the what the book says. Could someone please explain this?
