Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They are good conductors of electricity because when acid/bases enter a solution they deionize (separate into ions) which helps conduct electricity. Also acid = anything below pH of 7, base = anything above pH of 7.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Bases generally have hydroxyl groups or HCO3 and acids generally just have an H+. For example in your question HNO3 is an acid and KHCO3 is a base.
