Problem
The following diagrams represent aqueous solutions of two monoprotic acids, HA (A = X or Y). The water molecules have been omitted for clarity.
With HX, there are four HA molecules, two H3O+ molecules, and two A- ions present.  With HY, there are two HA molecules, four H3O+ molecules, and four A- ions present.
Which is the stronger acid, HX or HY?
