Shock-induced electromotive forces were measured in water and potassium-fluoride aqueous solutions. While we obtain the same result of former researches for pure water, the magnitude of the emf signal tended to increase with concentration in weak aqueous solutions. These phenomena may be explained with the assumption that emf is initiated by the change in Fermi level of measuring electrode under high pressure polarizing the adjacent liquid. The emf signals generated in concentrated solutions behaved unlike those of dilute solutions. Some models are proposed as the source of shock induced emf signals.
