How does HClO4 dissociate?
Hydrochloric acid is a hazardous liquid which must be used with care. The acid itself is corrosive, and concentrated forms release acidic mists that are also dangerous. If the acid or mist come into contact with the skin, eyes, or internal organs, the damage can be irreversible or even fatal in severe cases.
If the concentration of hydrochloric acid gas in the air is 0.035%, humans will have a pain in the throat and chest, and have difficulty in breathing within 10 minutes. The inhalation of a large quantity of hydrochloric acid gas or mist may result in death.
The general rule is that the acid is stronger if it has more O atoms in a series such as this. HClO4, perchloric acid, is a very strong acid as is HClO3. HClO2 is a weak acid and HClO is even weaker. Thus we see more oxygen atoms means more possible strutures & which means stronger the acid.
Which is the strongest acid in the following HClO4?
What is the shape of HClO4?
HClO4 : acid. HClO4 is one of the seven strong acids (Recall: HCl, HBr, HI, HClO3, HClO4, HNO3, and H2SO4). In water, it completely dissociates into H+ and ClO4–.
