Identifying Unknown Substances as Ionic or Not Ionic

Unit 2: Electron Configuration & Bonding
Lesson 7 of 9

Objective: SWBAT use conductivity meters to identify solutions that are made by dissolving ionic compounds in water.

Big Idea: Ionic compounds dissolve in water producing ions that can conduct electricity; we can use this fact to identify unknown substances as ionic or not ionic in lab.
