Question:

For electrolyte solutions, the {eq}\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\ {/eq} the concentration of the electrolyte and the {eq}\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\ {/eq} the ion charges, then the {eq}\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\ {/eq} the ion-pairing.

a) lower, smaller, greater.

b) higher, smaller, smaller.

c) higher, greater, greater.

d) lower, greater, smaller.

e) lower, greater, greater.

Electrolytes:

Electrolytes are compounds that, when dissolved in a suitable solvent (polar), produce a solution that will conduct electricity. The solution thus obtained can be termed as an electrolytic solution.

Answer and Explanation: 1


An electrolyte present in an electrolytic solution will dissociate into their respective ions when it conducts electricity. As the concentration of this electrolyte increases, the ions produced from it also increases and thereby increasing the pairing of these ions.


So, the given statement can be completed as,


For electrolyte solutions, the {eq}\underline {{\rm{higher}}} {/eq} the concentration of the electrolyte and the {eq}\underline {{\rm{greater}}} {/eq} the ion charges, then the {eq}\underline {{\rm{greater}}} {/eq} the ion-pairing.


Hence the correct option is c).
