Some of the trends we see to tell the differences is stronger acids have lower pKa values, strong acids lose H+ easily and the resultant anion must be stable. With weaker (larger) bonds it is easier to remove the H+. Short bonds are stronger where we can see the smaller elements trend towards the upper right of the periodic table. Short, stronger bonds are less acidic.
