what is an ionic equilibrium

Asked by sreejitakarmakar1999 | 2nd Oct, 2018, 11:48: AM

Expert Answer:

An aqueous solution of acetic acid mainly contains unionised acetic acid molecules and only some acetate ions and hydronium ions due to partial ionisation(less than 5%)of acetic acid. Hence, acetic acid is a weak electrolyte
 
Thus, in weak electrolytes, equilibrium is established between ions and unionised molecules. This type of equilibrium involving ions in the aqueous solution is called ionic equilibrium.
