The answer is K3PO4(s) → 3K+(aq) + PO43–(aq) from water-soluble ionic phosphate tripotassium dissociates completely into K+ and PO43– ions when it dissolves, that is to say, not K3PO4 remains in the solution. The carbonic acid H2CO3 and acetic acid CH3COOH electrolytes (weak as they are weak acids that do not ionize completely, whereas nonelectrolyte CH3OH does not dissociate into ions.
