It flows in the form of ions


During the formation of an ionic compound, the individual atoms gain or lose electrons forming ions which are held together with electrostatic force of attraction.When dissolved in water, the polar water molecule slips the compound into its constituent ions.

The negetive ion(cation) travels to the cathode and loses electrons while positive ion(anion) travels to the anode and gains these electron which are transported via electric circuit from the cathode
