05/13/09 Electrolytes The degree that a compound dissociates into ions is a  measure of its strength , not its concentration. 0% 100% Strong electrolytes - dissociate virtually 100% into ions, at all concentrations Weak electrolytes - dissociate less than 50% into ions Non-electrolytes - do not form ions when dissolved in a solvent

05/13/09 Strong Electrolytes Strong Acids • HCl, HBr, HI, HNO 3 , H 2 SO 4 , HClO 4 , etc. Strong Bases Group IA hydroxides: NaOH, KOH • Ca(OH) 2 , Sr(OH) 2 , Ba(OH) 2 Most ionic compounds

05/13/09 Strong Electrolytes Soluble Salts Binary compounds of metal cations with nonmetal anions Compounds of metal cations with polyatomic anions Ammonium cation with nonmetal or polyatomic anions. Which of these are soluble, strong electrolytes? KCl, Zn(NO 3 ) 2 , CuSO 4 , NH 4 I

05/13/09 Strong Electrolytes Slightly soluble salts Compounds which have a solubility product constant (K sp ) are strong electrolytes, but are not very soluble. • AgCl, BaSO 4 , Mg(OH) 2 , etc. This indicates that AgCl isn’t very soluble. (sparingly soluble) AgCl (s) AgCl (aq) Ag + (aq) + Cl (aq) This indicates that the amount of AgCl which dissolves ionizes extensively. (strong electrolyte)

05/13/09 Weak Electrolytes Weak acids, weak bases, and other soluble compounds which do not ionize extensively. A weak electrolyte will usually have a dissociation constant associated with it such as K a or K b .

Weak Electrolytes Weak Acids • HCOOH, CH 3 COOH, HF, HCN, HNO 2 , H 3 PO 4 , H 2 S, HS , H 2 CO 3 , HCO 3 , etc. Weak Bases
