Unformatted text preview: – Just because chemists write them as HClO 4 . Strengths of Acids Remember that for binary acids , acid strength increased with decreasing H-X bond strength. Ternary acids have the same periodic trend. Strong ternary acids have weaker H-O bonds than weak ternary acids. For example, compare acid strengths: HNO 2 <HNO 3 H 2 SO 3 < H 2 SO 4 This implies that the H-O bond strength is: You do it! HNO 2 > HNO 3 H 2 SO 3 > H 2 SO 4 Strengths of Acids Ternary acid strength usually increases with:...
