Problem: Order the following three solutions from smallest to largest pH:0.20  M HClO30.0030  M HNO31.50  M HCl

FREE Expert Solution

The pH of a solution is given by:

pH=-log[H3O+]


I. HClO3 is a strong, monoprotic oxyacid.

  • strong acids completely dissociate in water and that acids donate H+ to the base (water in this case).
  • The dissociation of HClO3 is as follows:
      HClO3(aq) + H2O(l)  H3O+(aq) + ClO3(aq)
