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

Solution: Rank the oxoacids of chlorine according to strength.HClO3, HClO4, HClO, HClO2

Problem

Rank the oxoacids of chlorine according to strength.

HClO3, HClO4, HClO, HClO2

Solution

The strengths of oxoacids is based on the number of oxygens or the electronegativity of the nonmetal in the oxoacid. An oxoacid is considered strong when there are at least 2 or more O than H.

Given:

HClO3             HClO4             HClO               HClO2


The three oxoacids given have different number of oxygens and the same nonmetal. We will rank them based on the number of oxygens and hydrogens in the oxoacid.
