Strong vs weak acid/base

Postby Marisa Gaitan 2D » Wed Dec 09, 2020 11:43 am

Is there a way to tell whether an acid/base is strong or weak? Or would memorization be the best way to learn them?

Hey!
The best method is unfortunately memorization but the other day I found a pneumonic for remembering the strong acids. Its "SO I BRought NO CLean CLOthes"
SO refers to H2SO4, I refers to HI, BR refers to HBR, NO refers to HNO3, CL refers to HCl, and CLO refers to HClO4/HClO3. I hope this makes it easier for you!
