In aqueous solution, classify these compound as strong adds, weak acids, strong bases, or weak bases. Strong aid Weak acid Strong base Weak base HCL H3PO4 KOH NH3 HNO3 Br^- HF H3COOH
Strong acids HCl, HNO3
Weak acids H3PO4, HF, CH3COOH
Strong base KOH
Weak bases NH3, Br-
Note: HBr is a strong acid, so Br- is an ineffective base in water (weaker than a conventional weak base, weaker than H2O as base). You may choose to not put it in the list if you understand that and if you can explain this to your teacher.
