Strong electrolytes: dissociate completely in water; include soluble ionic salts, strong acids, and bases
Weak electrolytes: doesn’t dissociate completely in water; include weak acids and bases
Nonelectrolytes: doesn’t dissociate at all; include molecular compounds
Strong electrolytes → conduct electricity
Each of the following compounds is soluble in water. For which compounds do you expect the resulting aqueous solution to conduct electrical current?
