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. 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 compound that breaks partially into ions as it dissolves in water is a weak electrolyte. At the same molar concentration a strong electrolyte is a much better
