Paheli had heard that rain. water is as good as distilled water. So she collected some rain water in a clean glass tumbler and tested it using a tester. To her surprise she found that the compass needle showed deflection. What could be the reasons?

Dear Student

Rain water is like a distilled water but some impurities are mixed in from the atmosphere. These impurities make the rain water conducting. This could be the reason for the deflection of compass needle.
