Answer : 1 C2H6O Explanation : Answer: A) C2H6O Explanation: C2H6O is a Non-electrolyte. An electrolyte is a compound that conducts an electric current when it is in an aqueous solution or melted. In order to conduct a current, a substance must contain mobile ions that can move from one electrode to the other. All ionic compounds are electrolytes. When ionic compounds dissolve, they break apart into ions which are then able to conduct a current ( conductivity ). Even insoluble ionic compounds such as CaCO 3 are electrolytes because they can conduct a current in the molten (melted) state. A nonelectrolyte is a compound that does not conduct an electric current in either aqueous solution or in the molten state. Many molecular compounds, such as sugar or ethanol, are nonelectrolytes. When these compounds dissolve in water, they do not produce ions. Electrolytes are of 3 types ---- Strong Electrolytes, Weak Electrolytes and Non Electrolytes. Strong Electrolytes ---- Compounds which completely dissolves. ( NaCl, Na2Co3, HCl )Weak Electrolytes ----- Compounds which do not completely dissolves.Non Electrolytes ------ Compounds which do not dissolves at all.
