Acid/Base bonds

Postby Anokhi Patel 2B » Sun Jan 19, 2020 3:19 pm

Do weak acids have shorter or longer bonds? What determines if an acid is weak or strong?

Longer bond length means that it is a weaker bond which results in it being a stronger acid.

stronger acids have weaker bonds. a strong acid is characterized by how it completely or almost completely dissociates in water. so in order for this to be the case, it makes sense then that acids have weaker bonds.

Strong acids by definition completely (or nearly completely) dissociate in solution. Conversely, weak acids would dissociate much less. Less dissociation as with weak acids means that the molecules are still held together and would therefore have stronger, shorter bonds.
