We’re being asked to rank the solutions from largest to smallest [H3O+]


Since we are given equal amounts of the acids, we can just compare their Ka values.


Recall that the higher the Ka value, the more acidic a solution will become which means it has a lower pH and higher concentration of hydronium ions.


We can obtain the Ka value of the acids from the textbook or online,
