  • question_answer The structure of orthophosphoric acid is               [KCET 2003]

    A)                 \[H-O-\overset{\,O\,}{\mathop{\underset{H}{\mathop{\underset{|\,}{\mathop{\underset{\,O\,}{\mathop{\underset{|\,}{\overset{\uparrow \,}{\mathop{P}}}\,}}\,}}\,}}\,}}\,-O-H\]  

    B)                 \[O\leftarrow \underset{\,H\,}{\mathop{\underset{|\,}{\mathop{\underset{\,O\,}{\overset{\,H\,}{\mathop{\underset{|\,}{\overset{|}{\mathop{P}}}\,}}}\,}}\,}}\,-O-H\]

    C)                 \[O\leftarrow \underset{H\,}{\overset{H}{\mathop{\underset{|\,\,\,}{\overset{|\,\,}{\mathop{P\,}}}\,}}}\,-O-H\]\[\]

    D)                 \[H-O-\overset{\,O}{\mathop{\overset{\uparrow }{\mathop{P}}\,}}\,=O\]\[\]

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

               \[{{H}_{3}}P{{O}_{4}}\]is orthophosphoric acid.                                 \[H-O-\underset{\underset{\underset{H}{\mathop{|}}\,}{\mathop{O}}\,}{\overset{O}{\mathop{\underset{|}{\overset{\uparrow }{\mathop{P}}}\,}}}\,-O-H\]
