Solution - Identify the Strongest Acid Amongst the Followings: Chloroacetic Acid, Acetic Acid, Trichloroacetic Acid, Dichloroaceticacid - Physical Properties of Carboxylic Acids

Question

Identify the strongest acid amongst the followings:

  1. Chloroacetic acid          
  2. Acetic acid
  3. Trichloroacetic acid
  4. Dichloroaceticacid

Solution

(c) Trichloroacetic acid
As the number of chlorine atoms increases, the electronegativity of that end of the molecule increases and the molecule adopts a progressively more ionic character (e.g. density, boiling point and acidity).

Is there an error in this question or solution?
