Classifying electrons question?

Classify each of the following aqueous solutions as a nonelectrolyte, weak electrolyte, or strong electrolyte.

CH3CH2CH2OH, CuCO4, HClO, HClO3, LiClO4, C12H22O11

1 Answer

  • Electrolytes…..

    CH3CH2CH2OH ….. nonelectrolyte

    CuCO3 …. nonelectrolyte … reacts with water to make solid Cu2CO3(OH)2 and CO2 gas

    HClO …. weak electrolyte / acid

    HClO3 ….. borderline weak electrolyte / acid

    LiClO4 ….. strong electrolyte …. ionizes completely

    C12H22O11 ….. nonelectrolyte
