Problem: Rank the oxoacids of iodine according to strength. (strongest-weakest)HIO4HIOHIO3HIO2

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to rank the oxoacids of iodine according to strength.


The strengths of oxoacids is based on the number of oxygens or the electronegativity of the nonmetal in the oxoacid. An oxoacid is considered strong when there are at least 2 or more O than H.

Given:

HIO4             HIO             HIO3               HIO2


The three oxoacids given have different number of oxygens and the same nonmetal. We will rank them based on the number of oxygens and hydrogens in the oxoacid.
