Bond strength and strength of acid.

Postby Riya Sood 4G » Sun Dec 01, 2019 10:37 pm

How does the bond strength play a role in determining the strength of the acid? Is there a trend?

i think the weaker the bond the stronger the acid

The longer the bond/the weaker the bond, the stronger the acid will be.

Since weaker bonds can release H+ more readily, compounds with weaker (longer) bonds are stronger acids.

The weaker or longer the bond, the stronger the acid.

Bond strength helps to determine how easily an acid gives up a hydrogen ion. H-F (strong, short bond) is a weaker acid than H--I (long, weaker bond) because it doesn't give up its hydrogen atom as easily.
