Solution: Which of the following are oxoacids (also known as oxyacids)? Check all that apply.a. HFb. HClc. HCNd. H3PO4e. Ba(OH)2 f. Chloric acidg. Nitrous acid


Which of the following are oxoacids (also known as oxyacids)? Check all that apply.

a. HF

b. HCl

c. HCN

d. H3PO4

e. Ba(OH)2 

f. Chloric acid

g. Nitrous acid


We’re being asked to determine which among the given compounds is an oxoacid.

Oxyacids (oxoacids) can be identified by the fact that they all possess an Hion connected to a nonmetal and oxygen (or H+ + negative polyatomic ions + oxygen/s), hence the prefix “oxy”. 

Analyzing each compound given:

a. HF
