There are some acids which are called the hydrogen halides.
They are \(HCl , HF, HI, HBr \)
I just want to know which one is the strongest among them and which one is the weakest in water?
Also which is the strongest and weakest acid or will they even be acids when not in aqueous solution ?
Please give the reasons behind your answer.
NOTE: I've thought of a reason but don't know if its valid or not. Its like the increasing atomic size from fluorine to iodine will be the cause of decrease in their bond energy with hydrogen and therefore \(HI\) will dissociate most readily and hence will be the strongest.
