Strong Acids

Postby Tai Metzger 3K » Sun Dec 01, 2019 8:04 pm

What are the strong acids and why are they so much better at donating protons than other molecules?

Strong acids are acids that completely dissociate to completion (100%). These acids include HCl, HBr, HI, HNO3, H2SO4, and HClO4. They are strong acids because the have weak bonds and are able to dissociate completely which allows them to donate a proton.

Why do the halogens form the strong acids? Why would they have the weakest bonds if they have the smallest atomic radius in each period?

Strong acids are able to completely dissociate in a solution to donate their protons. Most strong acids are inorganic.
