ARE ACIDS GOOD CONDUCTORS OF ELECTRICITY?

Dear Student,

Yes! Acids are good conductor of electricity when they are taken in aqueous solution. When an acid is dissolved in water,It lose hydrogen ions and loses lots of anions as well. Ionic solutions are good conductors of electricity. The stronger the acid, the more hydrogen ions in solution (and more anions), the better the conductor.

Weak acids like vinegar (acetic acid) conduct much less because it loses much fewer ions in solution.

thank you very much!

Acids are good conductors of electricity bcoz, when taken as an electrolyte, the acids ionise into positively & negatively charged particles thus releasing free electrons. For eg-

NaCl when dissociates into positive & negative charges, Na= +ve & Cl= -ve

Hope this helps!
