When dissolved it splits up into ions

#### Explanation:

When acid is disolved it splits into its ${H}^{+}$ ions and its other negative ion. Electrons themselves do not flow but the ions allow the flow of charge to occur, as the negative ions give their extra electron to the positive electrode and positive ions gain an electron from the negative electrode in an electrode cell.
