Is NaCl a strong or weak electrolyte?
Sodium chloride solution is a strong electrolyte.
first of all new guy was here any way here is the answer,An electrolyte refers to a substance that contains free ions and can be used as an electrically conductive medium. Most of the solute doesnot dissociate in a weak electrolyte whereas in a strong electrolyte a higher ratio of solute dissociates to form free ions. Some examples of strong and weak electrolytes are as follows: Weak electrolytes: H2SO4, HCl Strong electrolytes: NaNO3, NaCl, Na2SO4
NaCl is an ionic compound. In water it dissolves completely forming ions. Since it dissolves completely forming Na^+ and Cl^- ions it is classified as a strong electrolyte. Strong electrolytes are completely dissociated into ions in solution and conduct an electrical current strongly. Weak electrolytes are only partly dissociated (examples are molecules like acetic acid which forms a weak electrolyte). Nonelectrolytes do not form ions at all and do not conduct electricity in their solutions.
