How do we know whether a Hydrogen ion is completely dissociated in the water or not? Please explain with example.

The strength of an acid depends on the concentration of the hydronium ions (H3O+) present in the aqueous solution of an acid.


  • Strong Acids

A strong acid vigorously ionises in aqueous solution completely thereby producing a high concentration of hydronium ions (H3O+).

Examples: HNO3, HCl, H2SO4


                               HCl  + H2O       ⇋  H3O+   + Cl

  • Weak Acids

     Weak acids ionise only partially in aqueous solution to produce ions and molecules.

     Examples: H2CO3, CH3COOH, HCOOH


     CH3COOH + H2O       ⇋  H+   + CH3COO
