Without doing any calculations, indicate which of the five acids would give the highest [H+] in aqueous solutions of equal concentration.?
[Acetic Acid,4.74; Chloroacetic Acid, 2.85 ; Succinic Acid, 4.21; Hydrogen Phthalate Ion, 5.21; Formic Acid, 3.74].
Explain your reasoning.

The lower the pH, the higher the [H⁺] is.
As Chloroacetic acid has the lowest pH, chloroacetic acid would give the highest [H⁺].
