CBSE Class 10 Answered

if water is made up of covalent bonds then why does it ionise into h+ and o- when electricity is passed through it
Asked by pr_prashant | 22 Jan, 2011, 09:23: PM
Expert Answer
Dear Student
 
This is because water is a polar covalent compound. This molecule slightly dissociates disproportionately into the hydronium ion (H3O+(aq)) and an associated hydroxide ion (OH(aq)).
 
 
We hope that clarifies your query.
