Question:

1. Why H2SO4 is strong acid than H2SO3?

2. Why HClO2 is strong acid than HClO?

3. Why HClO is strong acid than HBrO?

4. Why CCl3COOH is strong acid than CH3COOH?

Explain the reasons.

Acidity of substances:

The term acid simply refers to the hydrogen concentration in a solution. If a substance can readily donate hydrogen, then the substance is said to be an acid. So, the greater the ability of a solution to donate protons, the more acidic is the solution. The reverse of an acidic solution is the basic nature of the solution.

Answer and Explanation:

To compare the strengths of the given acids:

1) {eq}\rm H_2SO_4 > H_2SO_3 {/eq}:

Reason: The acidity of similar substances with a different...
