Student TA’s Name: Alma Pipic Name: Jau-Ann Tsai Section # CHEM 101-87H Experiment # 1 Date of the experiment: October 6 th , 2010 Title: Conductivity of Solutions Introduction There are two types of chemical compounds: ionic or molecular. Ionic compounds are called electrolytes, while molecular compounds are called non electrolytes. They differ in their ability to conduct electricity when dissolved in water. In order for an aqueous solution to conduct electricity, it must contain ions. Ionic compounds, when dissolved in water, produce ions because they dissociate. In contrast, molecular compounds, when dissolved in water, do

not produce ions because they do not dissociate. The molecular compound is forced to stay together, while the ionic compound breaks up into ions (thus having the freedom to move around and therefore conduct electricity). The three categories used to classify the types of solutions are: strong electrolytes, nonelectrolytes, and weak electrolytes. Strong electrolytes (ionic compounds) dissociate

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
