🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Joens' class at FIU.

Solution: Which of the following acids will have the strongest conjugate base?a. HCN   b. HCl c. HClO4 d. HNO3 e. HI

Problem

Which of the following acids will have the strongest conjugate base?

a. HCN   

b. HCl 

c. HClO4 

d. HNO

e. HI

Solution

We’re being asked which of the given acids has the strongest conjugate base. To find this, we need to identify the weakest acid among the given choices.


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.
