Expert Answer

Electrolytes

It is an ionic compound which in the fused state or in aqueous solution allows the passage of an electric current and is decomposed by it.

Examples of electrolytes

Acids – H2SO4, HNO3, HCl, H3PO4

Bases – NaOH, KOH, NH4OH, Ca (OH) 2

Salts – NaCl, CuSO4 , PbBr2

Strong Electrolytes

Compounds which in their aqueous solution or in the fused state are almost completely ionised are called strong electrolytes.

Examples: Mineral acids, alkalis and salts

 

Weak Electrolytes

Compounds which in their fused state or aqueous solution are feebly ionised and are poor conductors of electricity are called weak electrolytes.

Examples: Acetic acid, oxalic acid

Non-Electrolytes

Compounds which neither in solution nor in the molten state allow an electric current to pass through them are called non-electrolytes.

Examples: Kerosene, carbon disulphide
