which is more acidic; CO or Co2 & why??
Asked by commandodriller | 19th Jul, 2008, 10:04: AM
CO2 is more acidic because when a molecule contains a multiple bonds between the atoms of dissimilar electronegativities ,the more electronegative atom tries to pull ¶ electrons of the multiple bonds and produces an electron deficiency on less elec tronegative atom,which in turn develops a tendency to accept electrons.
