    All the films vs All films

    Hi I would like to write one sentence and I am not sure which one is more appropriated.

    All the films have the high conductivity and mobillity.

    OR All films have the high cunductivity and mobillity.

    Which one is right?

    Please answer my question

    Thank You sou much

    If you're referring to specific films. "The films have the high conductivity and mobility". However "All films have the...." is a blanket statement including any film.

    I assume there is more that goes with this sentence fragment?

    Re: All the films vs All films

    yes. I tried to write "All the films have high resistivity and mobillity, which meets the requirment of this research.

    In this case, Do I have to say "All the films" or "all films"?

    Ok, if you've made it clear which films you're talking about, you could say 'All the films....'

    I have no idea what this sentence is intended to mean.

    Re: All the films vs All films

    Nor do I, but I am pretty sure that the second "the" should be omitted, unless you really to specify the particular "resistivity and mobility" (note there is only one L in this word). Note that in your original example, you said "conductivity and mobility". It sounds much more natural as:

    All the films have high conductivity/resistivity and mobility.

    I can only assume that the sentence makes sense to someone who understands the jargon.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
