Solution: Both NH3 and C12H22O11 are soluble molecular compounds, yet they behave differently in aqueous solution. Briefly explain why one is a weak electrolyte and the other is a nonelectrolyte.

Problem

Both NH3 and C12H22O11 are soluble molecular compounds, yet they behave differently in aqueous solution. Briefly explain why one is a weak electrolyte and the other is a nonelectrolyte.

Solution
  • Recall that strong electrolytes are electrolytes that completely dissociates in the solution. Strong acids and bases like HCl and NaOH are considered as strong electrolytes
