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.
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?
