small acid-dissociation constant, Ka → weak acid → weak electrolye → does not dissociation completely
does not completely dissociate → weak electrolyte
2 out of 8 molecule dissociate
complete dissociation → strong electrolyte
The following diagrams represent aqueous solutions of three acids, HX, HY, and HZ. The water molecules have been omitted for clarity, and the hydrated proton is represented as a simple sphere rather than as a hydronium ion.
Which acid would have the smallest acid-dissociation constant, Ka?
