How would you compare a strong acid and a weak acid in terms of the acid dissociation constant?
For a strong acid, by definition,
A strong acid is an acid for which the following equilibrium lies strongly to the RIGHT as we face the page:
And as with any equilibrium, we can quantify the expression by using the relationship:
Now, by definition, for a strong acid, the given equilibrium lies to the right, and thus the NUMERATOR in the expression is LARGE because the product
Strong acids in water include the mineral acids
