🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Ondov's class at UMD.

Solution: Pick the stronger base from each of the following pairs. a. ClO− or ClO4−b.Cl− or H2Oc. NO2− or ClO−

Problem

Pick the stronger base from each of the following pairs.

 

a. ClO or ClO4
b.Cl or H2O
c. NO2− or ClO

Solution

We’re being asked to determine which of the given pairs of conjugate base is stronger.


This is because the conjugate base of a strong acid does not react with water to reform the acid, making it a negligible conjugate base. On the other hand, the conjugate base of a weak acid reacts with water to reform the acid, making it a significant conjugate base.
