ELECTROLYTES Soluble substances dissolve to a good extent in a specific solvent. Insoluble substances do not dissolve to a good extent in a specific solvent (not more than 0.1 mol/L) In water, a soluble substance is classified as either an electrolyte or a non- electrolyte. A substance whose aqueous solution conducts electricity is called an electrolyte. A substance whose aqueous solution does not conduct electricity is called a non-electrolyte. In order for a solution to conduct electricity, it must contain ions. Non-electrolytes dissolve without producing ions in water. Table sugar is a non-electrolyte. If we were able to look at the molecular level of an aqueous solution of table sugar, we would see the individual molecules intact and dispersed in the solution surrounded by water molecules. Electrolytes break into ions as they dissolve in water. A compound that breaks entirely into ions as it dissolves in water is called a strong electrolyte. A

    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.
