Acid Strength

How can you tell an acid is stronger just by looking at its chemical formula?

Look for which would have increased relative anion stability, that should be your stronger acid.

Looking at the chemical formula, pay attention to the anion. If the anion, is larger that means the bond between the elements is weaker. If the bond is weaker that means the acid will dissociate more, thus indicating it is a strong acid.
