Why are there different types of probewith varying K factors?

The standard probe has a K factor close to 1.00.

The K=1.00 probe is suitable for most applications

Two other kinds of probe are available K=0.1 and K=10.

K=0.1 is used for low conductivity solutions.

The plates are moved closer together so that the lower level of activity gives a higher signal

The K=10 cell is used in situations where the top of the range is required
