Dear nikhil,

When a substance dissociates to a fair extent in water, it will produce enough ions to support an electric current. We can use this property to differentiate between substances that are molecular and substances that are ionic in solution. An electrolyte is a substance, which dissociates sufficiently in solution to carry an electric current. It is therefore ionic in nature.

We are all IITians and here to help you in your IIT JEE preparation.

All the best.
