Potassium chloride conducts electricity in _______ state.
Molten state of potassium chloride:
Therefore, potassium chloride conducts electricity in a molten state.
Potassium chloride is an electrovalent compound, while hydrogen chloride is a covalent compound. But, both conduct electricity in their aqueous solutions. Explain.
(a) State one appropriate observation for: Electricity is passed through molten lead bromide.
(b) State which of these will act as a non-electrolyte
(i) Liquid carbon tetrachloride
(ii) Acetic acid
(iii) Sodium hydroxide aqueous solution
(iv) Potassium chloride aqueous solution
(c) Copper sulphate soln. is electrolysed using copper electrodes.
(i) Which electrode to your left or right is known as the oxidising electrode and why ?
(ii) Write the equation representing the reaction that occurs.
(iii) State two appropriate observations for the above electrolysis reaction.
(d) Identify : A gas which does not conduct electricity in the liquid state but conducts electricity when dissolved in water.
