What is the ionic strength of 0.10 M ZnSO4?


Expert Answer

Step 1

A chemical compound consists of two or more different elements which are bonded with each other through different types of chemical bonds. A chemical bond is an interaction between two atoms that occurs due to valence shell electrons of an atom.

Step 2

An ionic bond can be defined as the electrostatic force of attraction between cation and anions. Here cation is a positively charged ion which is formed due to loss of electron whereas an anion is formed by the gain of electrons. Because of opposite charges they form a chemical bond with each other called an ionic bond. Since metals tend to lose electrons and form cation whereas non-metals tend to form anions by gaining electrons, therefore, the ionic bond is formed between metals and non-metals like NaBr, CaS, etc.

Step 3

Ionic strength is the measurement of the total concentration of the ions in the solution. It i...
