Investigating the resistance of a solution

In this investigation, I will be looking at the resistance of a solution, and the different things which affect it. In this experiment, I have chosen one variable, the salt concentration. I have chosen the following variables for the concentration: in a beaker of 50ml (cm ) : 0 grams, 1,2,3,4 and 5 grams. Using the circuit shown below, I will find out the resistance of the salt solution. I will keep the following variables the same: I will keep the temperature at room temperature, by not changing the room temperature at all, by keeping windows shut, and not adjusting the radiators during the experiment. I will monitor the temperature, and make a note, just incase it changes. I will monitor the temperature using a thermometer, which will be placed into the beaker during each experiment. I will keep the voltage at 5V and 50cm of solution, to keep it a fair test. The circuit will include a power pack, an ammeter, a voltmeter, two iron rods, a beaker, wires with crocodile clips and a measuring tube. I will repeat each experient once, so that I can find out an average,
