🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Pandey's class at USFSP.

Solution: Methanol, CH3OH, and hydrogen chloride, HCl, are both molecular substances, yet an aqueous solution of methanol does not conduct an electrical current, whereas a solution of HCl does conduct. Account for this difference.
