How would you describe a mixture in which ionic compound are dissociated in solution?
One in which has a bunch of ions surrounded by the water.
So basically, when the ionic compound is added to water, the Oxygen and the Hydrogen act as ions and cause the same charge on the ion to repel each other. This causes the ionic bond to break and independent ions to be filled in the water.
So basically just a sea of positive and negative ions.
