A child staying in the coastal region tests the drinking water and also the sea water with his tester. He finds that the compass needle deflects more in the case of sea water. Can you explain the reason?

Dear Student

Sea water contains more amount of salt than drinking water. So the sea water is a better conductor of electricity. This is the reason that the compass needle deflects more in case of sea water.

Thanks
