# Why does an aqueous solution of acid conduct electricity?

Tutor

In simpler words, this is so because an aqueous solution of water has both cations and anions in it. When two different electrodes are immersed in it and potential difference is applied across the electrodes the anions and cations start flowing to their respective electrodes and hence the electricity...

In simpler words, this is so because an aqueous solution of water has both cations and anions in it.  When two different electrodes are immersed in it and potential difference is applied across the electrodes the anions and cations start flowing to their respective electrodes and hence the electricity is generated.

Aqueous Solution of an Acid Conduct Electricity Due to the presence of free ions that help in the conduction of electricity.

Water with a Ph value of 7 is non conductive as it does not have free ions. But since acids (Ph vale less than 7) consists of free H+ ions, an aqueous solotion of water would have plenty of free H+ ions (cations) as well as - anions. When a potential difference is applied to the solution through two...

Water with a Ph value of 7 is non conductive as it does not have free ions. But since acids (Ph vale less than 7) consists of free H+ ions, an aqueous solotion of water would have plenty of free H+ ions (cations) as well as - anions. When a potential difference is applied to the solution through two immersed electrodes, the positive H ions are arttacted towards the cathode (the -ve electrode of the circuit) and anions to the +ve elctrode of the circuit. Thus these charges start flowing in the solution thereby conducting electricity.

Because in aq.sol.means water+ acid so they have free ions which helps in conduction of electricity

Tutor

Aqueous solution of acid provides proton in solution . positive charge conducts electricty in solution.

Teacher

Pure water is a non-conductor of electricity. But by adding a little acid ir even a bit of salt, it becomes a conductor and hence it conducts electricity.

Tutor

In aqeous solution ions break into postive and negative part and we know that ions conduct electricity.... Like for example NaCl break in water Na + and Cl- it conduct electricity..
