    Arrhenius Acid: Increases H+ concentration Arrhenius Base: Increases OH- concentration Bronsted-Lowry Acid: Donates a proton (H+) Bronsted-Lowry Base: Accepts a proton Lewis Acid: Accepts an electron pair Lewis Base: Donates an electron pair a. The Arrhenius definitions work the best here: NaOH is the base, which splits into the conjugate acid (Na+) and conjugate base (OH-). b. Standard Arrhenius definitions. c. Arrhenius doesn't really apply here, Bronsted-Lowry is better for this case. I hope you can figure out which is the acid and which is the base on your own, given the definitions of each.
