all water is conductive. distilled water is used in car batteries when mixed with a percentage of sulfuric acid. the chemical reaction between the
acid and the lead oxide cells creates electrons which captured give voltage. when charging a battery the proocess is reversed. approximately 2.1
volts per cell. 12 cells completing a 12.6 volt car battery.
distilled water is used because impure water will cause the battery's cells to corrode and collapse.
the sulfuric/water solution obviously has a high level of acidicy.
if the solution 65% water was boiled and the steam vapour captured that condense water will still retain a high level of acidicy due to the atoms
dissapation does not sepparate the molecules at a sub atomic level.
having a good understanding of matter will help you realise that all things can be solid or gas when the correct temperature is applied.
when two types of matter (eg. metals) are liquified and mixed they join on a sub-atomic level. it far more difficult to reverse this process. water
functions in the same manner.
