Problem 77P

Determine whether each acid is a binary acid or an oxyacid and name each acid. If the acid is an oxyacid, provide the name of the oxyanion.

(a) HNO2(aq)

(b) HI(aq)

(c) H2SO4(aq)

(d) HNO3(aq)

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 77P

Step 1:

Binary acids are molecules, which contain two elements; one element is hydrogen, and the other one is a nonmetal element, which is more electronegative than hydrogen. Therefore, binary acids can donate H+ ions in aqueous media. Examples for binary acids are HCl, HF, HBr, and H2S

An oxyacid is an acid that contains an oxygen atom bonded to a hydrogen atom and at least one other element.In these acids the acidity is determined by the electronegativity of the central atom and the number of oxygen atoms.
