Question

 Identify the acid and conjugate base in each reaction. Calculate the pKA for each acid. List them in order from the strongest to weakest acid. The acid-ionization constants, KA, at 25°C are provided for each.

  1. C6H5OH + H2O Û H3O+ + C6H5O-, KA = 1.2589254 x 10-10
  2. CH3CO2H + H2O Û H3O+ CH3CO2-, KA = 1.5848 x 10-5
  3. CF6CO2H+H2O Û H3O+ + CF6CO2-, KA = 0.6309
