What is the degree of dissociation of the electrolyte if 60 of every 200 of its molecules decay into ions?

Electrolytic dissociation is the process of decomposition of an electrolyte into ions under the action of a solvent.

The characteristic of ED is the degree of ED. Denoted by a.

a = N / N0 ∙ 100%

N – the number of molecules decayed into ions
N0 is the total number of molecules of the solute.

0 <a <1.

a = 100% * 60/200 = 30%.

a> 30% – strong electrolyte,
2% <a <30% – average,
a <2% – weak.

Factors affecting the degree of ED:

1) temperature,

2) concentration,

3) the nature of the electrolyte and solvent,

4) dissociation constant.
