Strong Vs. Weak Acids and Bases

Postby Ashley Kao 1H » Sat Dec 07, 2019 10:46 am

Are we required to memorize the different strong and weak acids or is there a way to distinguish by looking strictly at the acid or base?

I would suggest you just go ahead and memorize them. That may make things much easier if you already know them! What about coming up with a fun mnemonic to help memorize them?

It would be helpful! Here are a few
Strong Acids: HCl, H2SO4, HNO3, HI, HBr, HClO4, HClO3
Strong Bases: LiOH, NaOH, Ba(OH)2, KOH, Ca(OH)2

I've stated this earlier, memorize all the strong acids using flashcards, and memorize that all strong bases are OH- molecules .
