Hello Student
A weak electrolyte is an electrolyte that does not completely dissociate in solution. The solution will contain both ions and molecules of the electrolyte.
For example- HC2H3O2 (acetic acid), H2CO3 (carbonic acid), NH3 (ammonia).

Electrolytes are substances that produce ions in solution.Substances can be categorized as strong electrolytes, weak electrolytes or nonelectrolytes.

Weak Electrolytes
A weak electrolyte only partially dissociates in solution and produces relatively few ions. Polar covalent compounds are typically weak electrolytes. Weak acids and weak bases are weak electrolytes. For example:
CH3COOH (l) + H2O - CH3COO- + H+
