Answer

Acetone: Acetone. HClO: HClO, H+, and CLO- ions. Ammonium chloride: Ammonium 1+ ions and chlorine 1- ions.

Work Step by Step

Acetone is the nonelectrolyte, so all of the particles will be simple acetone. HClO is a weak electrolyte, so the solution will contain HClO, H+, and CLO- ions. Ammonium chloride is a strong electrolyte, so the solution will contain ammonium 1+ ions and chlorine 1- ions.
