    5. When comparing 0.050M HF (aq) and 0.010M HF (aq) which of the following statements is false ?

    A. The pH of 0.050M is lower than the pH of 0.01M
    B. The percent ionization of 0.010M is greater than 0.050M
    C. The electrical conductivity of 0.050M is greater than 0.010M
    D. All of the above ( therefore the statements are all false )
    E. None of the above ( therefore the statements are all true )
