Choose the statement that correctly describes how a weak electrolyte looks in a beaker of water. A weak electrolyte is completely soluble in water, so all of the weak electrolyte breaks into its ions, dispersed throughout the water. A weak electrolyte is completely insoluble in water, so all of the solid weak electrolyte will settle to the bottom of the beaker. A weak electrolyte is mostly (~95%) insoluble in water, so most of the solid weak electrolyte will settle to the bottom of the beaker, but a few ions will remain in the water. A weak electrolyte is mostly (~95%) soluble in water, so most of the weak electrolyte breaks into its ions, dispersed throughout the water.

Step 1

The correct statement has to be chosen about how a weak electrolyte looks in a beaker of water. Given statements are-

  1. A weak electrolyte is completely soluble in water, so all of the weak electrolyte breaks into its ions, dispersed throughout the water.
  2.  A weak electrolyte is completely insoluble in water, so all of the solid weak electrolyte will settle to the bottom of the beaker.
  3. A weak electrolyte is mostly (~95%) insoluble in water, so most of the solid weak electrolyte will settle to the bottom of the beaker, but a few ions will remain in the water.
  4. A weak electrolyte is mostly (~95%) soluble in water, so most of the weak electrolyte breaks into its ions, dispersed throughout the water.

 

Step 2

An electrolyte is defined as any substance that dissociates into its ions when dissolved in polar solvent like water and with the movement of these ions, they carry electric charge . It implies that electrolyte acts as an electric conductor in polar solvents.

Whereas, a non-electrolyte do not dissociate into its ions and thus do not conduct electricity.

Now, electrolytes can be of two types-
a) ...
