The concentration of
If an acid is said to be strong, this means that 100% of the molecules of the acid undergo ionization. For example, in the case of HCl
This ionization of the HCl molecules is complete. There are no HCl molecules remaining in the solution after this has happened (which takes place in a very short time period).
So, if we place 0.10 mole of HCl into 100 mL of water, we will find the solution contains 0.10 mole of
Likewise, if the label on the bottle reads "0.200 M HCl" (or any other strong acid for that matter), the
Before trying to calculate the
By the way, if the acid is "diprotic", meaning there are two
So, a 0.100 M solution of
