(b) hydrobromic acid

(c) sulfurous acid

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 81P

(a) phosphoric acid

Phosphoric acid is a mineral acid having the chemical formula H₃PO₄. Orthophosphoric acid refers to phosphoric acid, which is the IUPAC name for this compound.

(b) hydrobromic acid

Hydrobromic acid is a strong acid formed by dissolving the diatomic molecule hydrogen bromide (HBr) in water.

(c) sulfurous acid

Sulfurous acid (also sulphurous acid) is the chemical compound with the formula H2SO3. There is no evidence that sulfurous acid exists in solution, but the molecule has been detected in the gas phase. The conjugate bases of this elusive acid are, however, common anions, bisulfite (or hydrogen sulfite) and sulfite.
