Calculation and Diagram Set Vg of the bridge and amplifier to equal each other Vout = -Ra( (RX/(RX+R3)) – (R1/(R1+R2))) Rb
Test and Procedure 1. Connect the circuit 1. Connect the circuit 2. Pour the 50,000uS/cm calibrated solution in the beaker up to 200ml (make sure the temperature is about 25C to avoid worring about specific conductivity.) 3. Record the DC output Voltage (V1 – V2) and solve for Rx (the electrode impedances) 4. Pour the Solution out of the beaker until it reaches about 100ml in the beaker. 5. Add some distilled water in the beaker to reach 200ml. (This basically reduces the conductivity by half.) 6. Measure the DC output voltage. 7. Repeat procedure (4 – 6) until around measurements are made. 8. Plot the Data: The concentration of Salt in the water, VS electrode impedances. NOTE: PPM = (Electrical Conductivity(EC)) * 500.
