Rank the following hydroxides in order of increasing aqueous basicity: Al(OH)3, B(OH)3, In(OH)3.
Step 11 of 2
As we've already seen in previous exercises, decreases down the group meaning that elements are less capable of attracting a shared electron pair. Due to the fact acids are, by definition, and we can conclude that lower electronegativity means higher basicity. Therefore:
Step 11 of 3
In this problem, we are tasked to rank the given metal hydroxides in order of increasing basicity.
