How do we identify a strong acid in aqueous solution?
As you are no doubt aware, this distinction is usually used in the context of
A strong acid is completely ionized in aqueous solution; viz. for the hydrohalic acids,
The strength of an acid depends upon the completion of this equilibrium; i.e. how far the equilibrium to the right.
On the other hand, weaker acids, incompletely ionize:
This equilibrium lies to the left as we face it due to (i) the intrinsic strength of the
