Strong acid → strong electrolyte → complete dissociation in water
HX → do not dissociate completely
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 of the acids is a strong acid?
