Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Raj on Sunday, December 16, 2007 at 5:55pm.

How can I tell whether something is a weak, strong, or non-electrolyte?

I know non-electrolytes do not ionize, strong almost completely ionize and weak only partially.

But how would I be able to tell? Like, something like KOH is a strong electrolyte because it can ionize into OH^- and K^+ ions, but why is something like water a weak electrolyte, even though it can ionize into OH^- an H^+ ions.
