Unformatted text preview: water has no ions to conduct electricity. 6) 0.50 M HCl Versus 0.550 M Acetic Acid (HC 2 H 3 O 2 ): Reason: HCl is strong acid & ionizes 100% while acetic acid is a weak acid & ionizes ~ 1%. 7) 0.50 M NaOH Versus 0.10 M KOH: Reason: NaOH is 5 times more concentrated than KOH making it better conductor of electricity. 8) 0.50 M NaCl Versus 0.10 M Boric Acid (H 3 BO 3 ): Reason: NaCl ionic compound that ionized 100% is better conductor than a weak acid. 9) Tap H 2 O Versus 0.15 M KCl Reason: Tap water has small amount of dissolved salt ions while 015 M KCl has many ions. 10) 0.54 M BaCl 2 Versus Copper Wire Reason: Transition metals (copper) are worlds best conductor of electricity.
