### Does the acid strength of hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid correlate with the electronegativity of the halides? [duplicate]

Is this statement true or false? HCl is a stronger acid than HF because fluorine is more electronegative than chlorine. I'm thinking this is true, because since fluorine is more electronegative ...

### Hydrogen halide acidity

Why is it that $pK_{\ce{a-HF}} \lt pK_{\ce{a-HCl}}\lt pK_{\ce{a-HBr}}\lt pK_{\ce{a-HI}}$, although the electronegativity decreases? The more electronegative the atom accompanying hydrogen, the lower ...

### Solubility vs Dissociation of HF

Ok, so I understand that solubility is a measure of how well a compound is solvated by the solvent. And dissociation is a measure of how much of a compound splits into its ionized forms. Does HF have ...

### why HI isn't fully miscible with cold water when HF is?

HF is more soluble in water than HI , due to greater hydrogen bonding in HF , accepted but, on the other hand HF is a very weak acid so it's dissociation will be meagre when compared to HI's ...

### How to estimate the equilibrium constant of the reaction between NaF and HCl

Since $\ce{HCl}$ is more acidic than $\ce{HF}$, the left hand side of a reaction has a stronger acid than the right hand side. Since $\ce{NaF}$ is more basic than $\ce{NaCl}$, the left hand side has ...
