Nitric acid vs Nitrous acid Difference

Nitric acid vs Nitrous acid Difference? The formula for Nitric Acid is HNO3, while the formula for Nitrous Acid is HNO2. HNO3 is a strong acid, HNO2 is a weak acid. In other words, the pKa value for HNO2 is higher than that of HNO3 because HNO2 is a weaker acid. Note that Ka is acid dissociation constant, pKa is equal to -log10ka
