Which solution contains more acid, 50ml of a 0.20 N HCL solution or 50 ml of a 0.20 N acetic acid solution? Which has a higher hydronium ion concentration? Which has a lower pH?

  • Chemisty -

    moles acid = M x L = ??
    Acetic acid is a weak acid (ionizes less than 100%) and HCl is a strong acid (ionizes 100%); therefore, the H3O^+ is stronger in the HCl.
    The pH scale operates as follows:
    <7 = acid.
    7 = neutral
    >7 = basic
