Here, the O atoms draw electrons away from Z atom and make it more positive. The Z atom, therefore, becomes more effective in withdrawing electron density. In turn, electrons of the H – O bond are drawn more strongly away from the H atom. The net effect makes it easier for the proton to dissociate and increases the acidity of the compound. With more number of 0 atoms bonded to Z, the compound becomes a stronger acid.


The acid strength is also explained by the oxidation number of central atom ( here P )


H3PO2  -      +1


H3PO3  -     +3


H3PO4  -     +5


The acid strength is also explained by counting the number of oxygen atoms bonded to P


hence order of acidity is : H3PO4   > H3PO3  >H3PO2
