how can you figure out which substance conducts electricity (in water) besides testing.
[ i actually already did the testing for sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate, calcium carbonate, potassium bromide, calcium chloride, copper (II) sulfate and sucrose but for some reason none of them made my light bulb on a circuit light]
now i cant figure out what they would have in common that would cause them to conduct electricity or which of the above would and why.
edit: i dont think calcium carbonate would because it didnt even dissolve.
edit#2: kk just figured out that NaCl ions would conduct sooo conclusion sodium chloride is likely to conduct electricity?
