🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Nettles' class at MSSTATE.
For the acid-base reaction below, which side will predominate at equilibrium?
Choose the letter that corresponds to the phenomenon that best explains (and is the predominant reason why) which side will predominate at equilibrium for the reaction below.
A. Electronegativity of the atom
B. Size of the atom
C. Resonance or delocalization of the charge
D. Inductive effect
E. Hybridization of the atom
We’re being asked to determine the side in which equilibrium lies for the given reaction:
Recall that in an acid-base equilibrium, the side with the weaker acid is favored.
For this problem, we need to do the following:
Step 1: Identify the acid, base, conj. acid, and conj. base.
Step 2: Compare the acidity of the acids.
