Is it soluble? • All of dissolved compound will 100% dissociate to give ions in solution strong electrolyte • Will conduct electricity with a strong current • e.g., NaBr • insoluble = <0.01 mol/L • some solid will dissolve; any dissolved solid will 100% dissociate to give ions in solution strong electrolyte • will conduct electricity with a weak current • e.g., AgCl Is it an acid? IONIC MOLECULAR YES NO NO What type of compound is it? Is it a strong acid?
