Strong Acids

Postby Jasleen Kahlon » Wed Feb 12, 2020 2:35 am

How can a strong acid be identified from looking at a chemical equation? Is there a way to tell, or do they have to just be memorized?

There are common strong acids and bases. For acids there is HClO4 , HCl, HBr, HI, HNO3, and H2SO4 although there is the pattern of halogens forming strong acid because they easily dissociate it's better to memorize the more common strong acids and bases.

Strong acids also have large Ka values and small pKa values.
