1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hi. I'm pretty much a beginner in organic chemistry and I'm just wondering something. For example, I know that HCl is a stronger acid than HF. But... then why the following happens if a have an organic acid (e.g a carboxylic acid)? According to what I see, a carboxylic acid with a Cl substitutent is weaker than one with a F substituent. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I also know that because of electronegativity the difference between H and F is higher than that of H and Cl. So, that means that the bond between H and F is stronger, and therefore, the compoud is weaker ... am I right?
