Acid Strength

Acid strength of a species is its ability to donate H+ to another species (see Brønsted-Lowry theory).  The greater the ability of a species to donate H+ to another species, the greater its acid strength.  Acid strength of a species is measured as acid dissociation constant.

See also base strength.
