Experiments have been conducted on the conductivity of cod liver oil under different conditions. These experiments were carried out in a conductivity cell using brass plates placed in some instances about.003 inch apart and at other times at about.020 inch. The temperature of the oil was raised to approximately fifty degrees Centigrade and allowed to cool slowly to three or four degrees below zero Centigrade, readings on the conductivity being made at frequent intervals. The conductivity decreased as the temperature was lowered, the decrease becoming very rapid at the lower temperatures. When the temperature was raised, the conductivity increased, the conductivity-temperature curves being approximately the same in the two cases.
