Question

Electrolytes when dissolved in water dissociates into ions because:


A
They are unstable
loader
B
The water dissolves it
loader
C
The force of repulsion increases
loader
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$$\text{ option C is a correct answer.}$$
