Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Joe on Sunday, March 21, 2010 at 10:00pm.

There exists a correlation between maximum electrostatic potential and acid strength. As pKa decreases (acid strength increases), the maximum electrostatic potential for a molecule increases.

Given a particular acid, is there any way to determine the maximum electrostatic potential values (in kJ/mol) for EACH hydrogen atom attached? For example, can one figure out what the maximum electostatic potential is for each H attached to C and the acidic H that is attached to O? If this can't be determined mathematically, is there a site that has these values for various acids?
