Why does an aqueous solution of an ionic compound conduct electric current?
Asked by Koustav Sengupta | 21st Jul, 2012, 09:26: PM
If a voltage is applied across the molten mass of ionic compound, cations migrate freely to one electrode and anions migrate to the other. This ion movement allows electricity to flow between the electrodes through an external wire. Also the ions are free to move about in the aqueous solution.
