In paragraph two, it states "Pure water contains very few ions, so it does not conduct electricity well. When table salt is dissolved in water, the solution conducts very well, because the solutions contain ions.". In paragraph four, it explains how laundry ammonia can conduct electricity. It states "When ammonia dissolves in water, it reacts with the water and forms a few ions.". In conclusion, paragraph five explains more about how ammonia can cause electricity when it is put into a solution with vinegar.
An electrolyte is a substance that produces an electrically conducting solution when dissolved in a polar solvent, such as water. The dissolved electrolyte separates into cations and anions, which disperse uniformly through the solvent.There are electrolytes in sports drinks which athletes drink which helps their body because the body depends on the electrolytes to control the cell membrane stability and carry electrical charges.
b. Aqueous NaCl—Sodium Chloride contains both sodium and chloride ions, but in the solid state they are locked in place and therefore unavailable to conduct electricity. But, when NaCl is dissolved in water, the ions are free to move and conduct
The main purpose of this experiment was to show that single displacement reactions between metals according to their reactivity, with more reactive elements having the power to displace less reactive elements and take their place in a chemical compound (Beran, 2014). This was supported by the results of the experiment, where solid metals were combined with aqueous solutions that contained another element, and reactions only took place when the solid metal was more reactive than the other element in the compound. Only three attempted trials resulted in a failure to produce a reaction, namely the combinations of copper with hydrochloric acid, and copper with nickel sulfate. The outcomes of these trials are justifiably reasonable because copper is ranked lower in the
In the last article "Conducting Solutions" the main purpose is that it explains how different materials conduct electricity. In this passage, they describe an experiment with sugar and water. It says that when sugar is dissolved in water, the solution does not conduct electricity because there are no ions in the solution. It also describes experiments with vinegar and ammonia. It says that they work well as a mixture because the ammonia reacts with the acid in vinegar and hey form a lot of
Aqueous solutions of ionic substances will be experimented with in this Ionic Reactions lab. Aqueous solutions are solutions that water is solvent. After ionic substances dissolve in water, ions separate and become surrounded by water molecules. When these ion separate, its called dissociation.
Bases that have are able to dissolve into water are known as alkalis. Sodium hydroxide is an alkali as it dissolves in water, copper oxide cannot dissolve water therefore is not an alkali.

Be sure that the data tables are organized and include units when necessary. Melting Point (4 points) Conductivity (4 points) Part II Conclusion Answer the following questions in your own words, using complete sentences. Based on your observations in the lab, categorize each unidentified compound as ionic or covalent. Explain in one or two sentences why you categorized the
Acids differ considerable as to their strength. The difference between weak and strong acids can be as much as 10 orders of magnitude. Strong acids dissociate more completely than weak acids, meaning they produce higher concentrations of the conjugate base anion (A-) and the hydronium cation (H30+) in solution.
Water (H2O) is a good solvent because it is partially polarized. The hydrogen ends of the water molecule have a partial positive charge, and the oxygen end of the molecule has a partial negative charge. This is because the oxygen atom holds on more tightly to the electrons it shares with the hydrogen atoms. The partial charges make it possible for water molecules to arrange themselves around charged atoms (ions) in solution, like the sodium (Na+) and chloride (Cl−) ions that dissociate when table salt dissolves in water.
Purpose: The purpose of this experiment was to observe the many physical and chemical properties of copper as it undergoes a series of chemical reactions. Throughout this process, one would also need to acknowledge that even though the law of conservation of matter/mass suggests that one should expect to recover the same amount of copper as one started with, inevitable sources of error alter the results and produce different outcomes. The possible sources of error that led to a gain or loss in copper are demonstrated in the calculation of percent yield (percent yield= (actual yield/theoretical yield) x 100.
Introduction: The concentration of Hydrogen Ions in a substance is its pH. Hydrogen Ions (H+), and Hydroxide Ions (OH-) are formed when an electron jumps from one H2O atom to another. When a Hydrogen Ion is in an aqueous solution (a solutions with water as the solvent) it bond with an H2O atom creating H3O also known as Hydronium. A substance with more Hydrogen Ions than Hydroxide Ion is called a base. A substance with more Hydroxide Ions than Hydrogen Ions is called an acid. This can be seen on the pH scale below (Figure 1). A pH scale shows the number of Hydrogen
