how do two weak conductors like glacial acetic acid and ammonia form a strong conductor?

  • chemistry -

    acetic acid is only slightly ionized. Ammonia is only slightly ionized. Therefore, there are few ions in either solution to conduct electricity. However, when they react, the product is ammonium acetate, which is a salt and a strong electrolyte. It ionizes 100%. Therefore, there are many ions to conduct the electricity.
