For conduction of electricity to occur, charged particles such as ions must be free to move so that electrical current can flow. In a solution of copper sulphate, the copper ions and sulphate ions are dissociated and are free to move. In solid copper sulphate the copper and sulphate ions are held rigidly in a giant ionic lattice by strong ionic bonds and cannot move.
