    Electrohydrodynamic equations developed by Hubbard and Kayser to account for the combined effects of dielectric saturation and dielectric friction on ionic motion in polar solvents are solved numerically to yield ionic conductances. Dielectric saturation is incorporated into this continuum treatment through a phenomenological relationship between the electric permittivity and field strength. The results of the analysis are critically tested by comparison with experimental conductance data.
