Electrolyte And Nonelectrolyte Solutions - Quiz

Determine whether each of the molecules shown would be soluble in water, and if so, whether they would form an electrolyte solution or nonelectrolyte solution.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What would happen if the following compound was added to water?

    • A.

      Forms an electrolyte solution

    • B.

      Forms a nonelectrolyte solution

    • C.

      Does not form a solution

    Correct Answer
    B. Forms a nonelectrolyte solution
    Explanation
    When a compound forms a nonelectrolyte solution, it means that the compound does not dissociate into ions when it is dissolved in water. This means that the compound does not conduct electricity in solution. In this case, when the compound is added to water, it does not break down into ions and therefore does not form an electrolyte solution. Instead, it remains as intact molecules in the water, resulting in a nonelectrolyte solution.

    What would happen if the following compound was added to water?

    • A.

      Forms an electrolyte solution

    • B.

      Forms a nonelectrolyte solution

    • C.

      Does not form a solution

    Correct Answer
    C. Does not form a solution
    Explanation
    If the compound does not form a solution when added to water, it means that it does not dissolve or mix with the water molecules. This could be due to the compound being insoluble or having a very low solubility in water. As a result, the compound would remain separate and distinct from the water, not forming a homogeneous mixture or solution.

    What would happen if the following element was added to water? 

    • A.

      Forms an electrolyte solution

    • B.

      Forms a nonelectrolyte solution

    • C.

      Does not form a solution

    Correct Answer
    C. Does not form a solution
    Explanation
    If the element does not form a solution when added to water, it means that it does not dissolve or mix with the water molecules. This could be due to various reasons such as the element being insoluble in water, having a chemical composition that does not allow it to form bonds with water molecules, or having a strong intermolecular force that prevents it from dispersing in the water. As a result, the element would remain separate from the water and not contribute to the formation of a solution.

    What would happen if the following compound was added to water?

    • A.

      Forms an electrolyte solution

    • B.

      Forms a nonelectrolyte solution

    • C.

      Does not form a solution

    Correct Answer
    B. Forms a nonelectrolyte solution
    Explanation
    This molecule actually forms a very weakly electrolytic solution, as it is able to act as a weak acid.

    What would happen if the following compound was added to water? 

    • A.

      Forms an electrolyte solution

    • B.

      Forms a nonelectrolyte solution

    • C.

      Does not form a solution

    Correct Answer
    A. Forms an electrolyte solution
    Explanation
    When a compound forms an electrolyte solution, it means that it dissociates into ions when dissolved in water, allowing the solution to conduct electricity. This suggests that the compound is ionic in nature, meaning it consists of positively and negatively charged ions. In contrast, a nonelectrolyte solution does not dissociate into ions and cannot conduct electricity. Based on the given answer, the compound in question would dissolve in water and dissociate into ions, forming an electrolyte solution.

    What would happen if the following compound was added to water?

    • A.

      Forms an electrolyte solution

    • B.

      Forms a nonelectrolyte solution

    • C.

      Does not form a solution

    Correct Answer
    A. Forms an electrolyte solution
    Explanation
    When a compound forms an electrolyte solution, it means that it dissociates into ions when added to water. This results in the solution conducting electricity. In this case, the compound being added to water is capable of dissociating into ions, creating a solution that can conduct electricity.
