Chloric acid. Chloric acid, HClO3, is an oxoacid of chlorine, and the formal precursor of chlorate salts. It is a strong acid ( pKa ≈ −1) and oxidizing agent .How does HClO dissociate in water?
Water is a polar solvent. A polar solvent will have positive and negative charge (in water, oxygen is slightly more negative and the hydrogen is slightly positive). HCl will dissociate in water because HCl is also a polar molecule (Cl is slightly negative and H is slightly positive).What is H2O composed of?
The element H2O is water. Water is comprised of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. It was discovered by chemist Henry Cavendish.
