Abstract– This study investigated the relationship between the potential concentration of hydrogen ions and electrical conductivity. Six samples were taken from different places of Dhanbad from Bastacola (mining area) and Palani (agricultural area) districts of Baliapur Dhanbad. Soil pH is important in determining its amount as a source of H+ and OH. Electrical conductivity can help to determine other physical parameters such as soil structure, porosity, and bulk density. Nonspecific ions such as Nitrate, Potassium, Sodium, Chloride, sulphate, and Ammonium help in various ways in the management of agricultural commodities, the types of crops we grow, and the way we work on soil management.

Key words: pH, Electrical conductivity, soil texture, Bulk Density, non-specific ions
