Why is meta nitrophenol most acidic than the respective para and ortho. I know this that the electron pair cannot delocalize into the nitro group when drawing the canonical structures but I want to know the real picture as to what actually happens in the molecule. As I understand canonical structures are made just to show the bondings as valence bond theory demands it, but resonance is not a process and therefore the electron isn't "being" delocalized, they are already delocalized as soon as the molecule is formed and so it should delocalize freely into meta positions as well as other position

Nam libero tempore, cum soluta nobis est eligendi optio cumque nihil impedit quo minus id quod maxime placeat facere possimus, omnis voluptas assumenda est, omnis dolor repellendus. Itaque earum rerum hic tenetur a sapiente delectus, ut aut reiciendis voluptatibus maiores alias consequatur aut perferendis doloribus asperiores repellat.
