Solution: Which of the following is a weak electrolyte?A. HNO2B. CuSO4C. FeSO4 D. H2SO4E. CsOH

Problem

Which of the following is a weak electrolyte?

A. HNO2

B. CuSO4

C. FeSO4 

D. H2SO4

E. CsOH

Solution

We’re being asked to classify each given compound and determine which is a weak electrolyte. Recall that:


• Strong electrolytes: dissociate completely in water; include soluble ionic salts, strong acids, and bases

a. Ionic salts: those that follow the rules of being soluble in solubility rules
