## Chemistry (7th Edition)

(a) Potassium chloride ($KCl$) is an ionic compound, which is very dissociated in water. Therefore, the solution will be very bright and conductive. (b) Methanol is a very molecular compound, which makes it a bad conductor in water. (c) Acetic acid $(CH_3CO_2H)$ is a weak electrolyte (according to the table 4.1, Page 118); therefore, the light bulb will only receive part of the electricity.
