  1. I assume the answer is H2SO4; however, you should be aware that only the FIRST H is a strong acid, the second H is weak (a strong weak but it is not 100% ionized).

  2. I'm confused with this question posted by Lauren.

    I thought that :
    H3PO4
    H2SO4
    HNO2

    were strong acids... but I was just taught to memorize a table of strong acids and bases and that the rest were all weak.

  3. Okay I got it...after looking it up I think I need to review acids and bases...

  4. H2SO4, HClO4, HNO3, HCl, HBr, HI are the common acids. But there are a few others.
