Expert Answer:

Mineral acids range from acids of great strength (example: sulfuric acid) to very weak (boric acid). As mineral acid molecules tend to consist of only a few atoms, of which many are polar, they tend to be very soluble in water, and insoluble in organic solvents. Mineral acids are very important to chemical procedures. An organic acid is an organic compound with acidic properties. The most common organic acids are the carboxylic acids whose acidity is associated with their carboxyl group -COOH.Generally, organic acids are weak acids and do not dissociate completely in water, whereas the strong mineral acids do.
