How does one differentiate between inorganic and organic acids?

Organic acids contain carbon whereas inorganic ones do not.

Inorganic acids don to have carbon and organic acids do contain carbon.

In relation to inorganic and organic compounds, inorganic acids are compounds that have an H in the beginning of the molecular formula, and that these acidic compounds will release their proton (H atom) in solution; in an organic acid, H atoms are written at the end of the carboxyl group -COOH, the H atoms are also released to form a carboxyl anion. In the previous comments, organic compounds have carbon present, while inorganic compounds do not, same as their acidic solutions.

Organic acids have carbon while inorganic acids do not have carbon.

Organic = Carbon. Therefore, organic acids have carbon while inorganic acids do not.
