Why does 0.10M acetic acid exhibit different conductivity from that of glacial acetic acid?

    Glacial acid is essentially 100% acetic acid. As such it has almost no ions present. However, when added to water to dilute it, ions are formed.
    CH3COOH + H2O ==> CH3COO- + H3O+
    And the added ions conduct electricity better.
