why do acids conduct electricity and alcohol and glucose do not

Asked by pr_prashant | 6th Aug, 2010, 12:00: AM

Expert Answer:

When acid is dissolved in water it dissociates into ions thus it conducts electricity due to presence of ions.
But alcohol being a very weak acid doesnot dissociate into ions and so it doesnot conducts electricity.
Glucose when dissolved in water doesnot produces ions so it doesnot conducts electricity.
