Problem: Are NaCl and HI strong electrolytes because they have similar behavior in aqueous solution? If not, describe, using words and equations, the different chemical process that takes place in each case.

FREE Expert Solution

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

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

Strong acids: HCl, HBr, HI, HNO3, H2SO4, HClO4, HClO3

Strong bases: Group 1A and 2A (Ca and lower) metals paired with OH, H, O2–, or NH2
