Re: Which is the stronger acid?

To answer this question, draw the structures of the resulting anion (conjugate base) and evaluate the stability. To draw the lewis structure of the anion, draw the original lewis structure and erase an H and put a negative. The stronger acid creates the more stable anion. HClO2 is stronger than HClO...
