Remember that HClO3 is a strong, monoprotic oxyacid. It’s a strong oxyacid since there are 2 more O than H in the formula.


Recall that strong acids completely dissociate in water and that acids donate H+ to the base (water in this case). The dissociation of HClO4 is as follows:


HClO3(aq) + H2O(l)  H3O+(aq) + ClO3(aq)
