Is Matter Around Us Pure
Ionic solids do not sustain/conduct an electric current in the solid state but do sustain/conduct an electric current when dissolved in water because:
- ionic solutes create conductive molecules with water.
- ionic solutes dissociate in water, creating free moving ions.
- ionic solutes release electrons when dissolved in water.
- ionic solutes allow water molecules to become ions.
Correct Answer: Option(b)
Solution: In solid state ionic solid exist as solid whole in solution state ionic solid ionizes into its constituent ions. Ions results conduction: in solid state ionic solid do not conduct electricity while in solution state it conduct.
