In general chemistry you spent many hours drawing out ICE charts and doing pKa calculations. After many calculations you were able to determine strong and weak acids. Not in organic chemistry.
At the orgo level you may be given ka/pKa values, but not for the purpose of doing calculations. These values help you rank strong or weak acids.
But that’s when the values are given. More than likely you’ll be faced with numberless acids. What then? This video shows you the logic behind the CARIO approach which will be broken down in subsequent videos.
