# Is sodium acetate strong or a weak electrolyte?

Since it is formed of a strong base and a weak acid it should be a strong electrolyte but a chemistry teacher said that it is a weak electrolyte.....

Strong or weak electrolytes will depend on the hydration enthalpy of products in water. That's why any salt like $$\ce{NaCl}$$ will completely dissolve in the water, though $$\ce{NaCl}$$ has high bond energy in powder form. In the above case, the hydration of the $$\ce{Na+}$$ ion will be so dominating that the salt will dissociate (hydrated) completely despite less hydration enthalpy of the anion.
