This site helps a bit to explain the process! : https://chem.libretexts.org/Courses/Sacramento_City_College/SCC%3A_Chem_420_-_Organic_Chemistry_I/Text/01%3A_Introduction_and_Review/1.15%3A_Predicting_Relative_Acidity
For binary acids, the atom with a greater radius will be more acidic because it can easily give off an H+ ion. For example, HI is a stronger acid than HF. For oxoacids, the molecule with the greatest amount of oxygens is the most acidic. This is due to the fact the it increases electronegativity, making the bond more polar and therefore acidic. In oxoacids, the acid with the more electronegative atom also is more acidic. For example, HClO is more acidic than HBrO.
