Andrew T. Hedrick Chem 32 Section S Experiment 8 – Solution Conductivity: Covalent and Ionic Solutes Prelaboratory Questions 1. How do you differentiate between a strong electrolyte, a weak electrolyte, and a  non-electrolyte? A strong electrolyte will completely ionize when put in solution, a weak electrolyte  will partially ionize, and a non-electrolyte will not ionize at all when put in solution. 2. Explain how you can have a solution of a weak electrolyte that is high in

Unformatted text preview: concentration. Even though a solution may be highly concentrated with solute, the solute could be a weak electrolyte in that is does not completely dissolve in solution. 3. Why do ionic compounds conduct electricity in the molten state, but not in the solid state? Ionic compounds will conduct electricity because they are fluid in the molten state and charges are free to move around the compound. Andrew T. Hedrick Chem 32 Section S...
