Problem 38

Consider the following illustrations: Which beaker best illustrates what happens when the following acids are dissolved in water? a. HNO2 d. HF b. HNO3 e. HC2H3O2 c. HCl

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 38

Consider the following illustrations:

 Which beaker best illustrates what happens when the following acids are dissolved in water? a.  d. HF b.  e.  c. HCl

                                                         Step by step solution

Step 1 of 5

In beaker 1, all the acid molecules dissociate completely and they exist as  and  ions. So, beaker 1 represents the solution of a strong acid. In beaker 2, most of the molecules are in undissociated form. They exist as HB in solution. Very few molecules dissociate into ions. So, beaker 2 represents the solution of a weak acid.

a)

HNO, is a weak acid. It does not dissociate completely when dissolved in water. Very few

molecules will dissociate. So, most of the molecules will remain as HA.

Therefore, the beaker 2 best illustrates aqueous HNO2 solution.
