Strength of Acids and Bases

Postby 805383532 » Sun Jan 19, 2020 10:48 am

How do you know the strength of an acid or a base just by looking at what molecules/atoms it's made of?

Yes, sometimes. This goes back to 14A where we looked at bond length and electronegativity (for binary acids like HI and HF and bases like LiOH and NaOH), and the number of oxygens to compare oxoacids.
