Question

# Electrolytes when dissolved in water dissociates into ions because:

A
They are unstable
B
The water dissolves it
C
The force of repulsion increases
D
The forces of electrostatic attraction are broken down by water.

Solution

## The correct option is B The forces of electrostatic attraction are broken down by water.Electrolytes when dissolved in water dissociates completely or partially to form ions. Example NaCl when dissolved in water dissociates to $$Na^+$$ and $$Cl^−$$ ions. Thus NaCl is a good electrolyte.Electrolytes when dissolved in water can conduct electricity. Because positive and negative ions are present in the solution because of the dissociation of the electrolytes in the solution.Hence$$\text{ option C is a correct answer.}$$Chemistry
