QUESTION

For an acid-base reaction, what is the reacting species in the following acid: Hydriodic acid? How do you determine this?

HI undergoes almost complete ionization in water. How do you determine this? By experiment.

Except for HF, ALL of the hydrogen halides in water are strongly acidic: HI>HBr>HCl. This difference in acidity is due to the weaker bond overlap of the higher halides, and also to the entropy effect of the smaller halide ions.
