And what makes an acid an acid and a base a base

They 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.

Bases 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.
