Solution: Sugar is a _____. A) weak electrolyte B) nonelectrolyte C) weak acid D) strong electrolyte E) strong acid

Problem

Sugar is a _____. 

A) weak electrolyte 

B) nonelectrolyte 

C) weak acid 

D) strong electrolyte 

E) strong acid

Solution

Establish the definition of strong, weak and nonelectrolytes and determine where sugar belongs


Recall that:


• Strong electrolytes: dissociate completely in water; include soluble ionic salts, strong acids, and bases

a. Ionic salts: those that follow the rules of being soluble in solubility rules

b. Strong acids: HCl, HBr, HI, HNO3, H2SO4, HClO4, HClO3

c. Strong bases: Group 1A and 2A (Ca and lower) metals paired with OH, H, O2–, or NH2
