Textbook Problem

Arrange each of the following in order of increasing acidity. You may need to use a couple of rules to decide the order for a given series. Explain the reasoning you use in each case.

  1. a HBrO2, HBrO3, HBrO
  2. b H2TeO3, H2SO3, H2SeO3
  3. c HI, SbH3, H2Te
  4. d H2S, HBr, H2Se
  5. e HClO2, HClO3, HBrO2

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Each of the given set of acids, in the order of increasing acidity has to be arranged.

Concept introduction:

Acid:

According to Bronsted-Lowry theory, a species which donates a proton in a proton transfer-reaction is said to be an acid.

Base:

According to Bronsted-Lowry theory, a species which accepts a proton in a proton transfer-reaction is said to be base.

Strong acid:

According to Arrhenius theory, a compound or a substance which completely ionized in a aqueous solution to give a hydronium ion and anion is said to be strong acid.

Strong base:

According to Arrhenius theory, a compound or a substance which completely ionized in a aqueous solution to give a hydroxide ion and cation is said to be strong base.

Explanation

For the given species the order of increasing acidity is HBrO < HBrO
