Trends of Acids and Bases

Postby Ashley Odibo Dis3E » Sat Dec 08, 2018 11:05 am

Are acids with an A-H bond stronger than acids with an AO-H bond?

I just came out of a chem review session and I was told that on the exam we will have to order from most to least acidic, but they will never make it so that we must confirm an oxoacid with a non-oxoacid. It is always comparing oxoacids with oxoacids and non with non.
Just know longer the atomic radii, the longer the bond, the easier it is to deprotonate, thus the more acidic it is.

Typically we compare A-H bonds with other bonds like that and the oxoacids (AO-H) bonds with others like it.
