    Strong electrolytes by definition are those compounds that completely dissociates into their component ions when dissolved in water. The chemical formula for the zinc fluoride is,

    ZnF2

    This means that each formula unit is composed of one atom of zinc and 2 atoms of fluoride. The ions comprising the unit are Zn²⁺ and F⁻. The dissociation is as shown below,

    ZnF₂ - - > Zn²⁺ + 2F⁻

    When dissolved in water it is expected that the compound dissociates into three different ions, one Zn²⁺ and two F⁻.
