compare the ionic strength of two common substances, candle wax and chalk?

Expert Answer:

Chalk is an ionic compound with chemical formula CaCO3.

When dissolved in water it exists in the form of Ca+2 and CO32- ions.

The ionic strength is very less.

Wax is a covalent compound and so it doesn’t dissociate into ions.

And hence the ionic strength will be nil.
