Well H2SO4 + OH- --> HSO4- + H2O
Did you just take the H from OH and move it to the SO4?
Yes I took the one H because H2SO4 is the acid so it is the proton donor
ohh yeah i remember that now. so what exactly is a bronsted lowry acid and base?
sorry i have not done these in a while so i dont really remember these questions very well
A Bronsted-Lowry acid is defined as anything that releases H+ ions; a Bronsted-Lowry base is defined as anything that accepts H+ ions.
@taramgrant0543664 isn't that the Arrhenius theory?
ok, so in this case the acid base pair is H2SO4 and H2O
@Rushwr honestly I mix them up all the time An Arrhenius base is a substance that when added to water increases the concentration of OH1- ions present. HCl is an example of an Arrhenius acid and NaOH is an example of an Arrhenius base. The H1+ ion produced by an Arrhenius acid is always associated with a water molecule to form the hydronium ion, H3O1+(aq). Thus is what I got when I searched
I thought lowry bronsted theory explains how an acids are able to release protons to any medium and a base should be a species that can acquire protons from the medium right?
and also OH and HSO4
@taramgrant0543664 u were right ! Cuz arhenius theory talks about OH- ! But lowry bronsted don't talk about that !
@wampominater H2SO4 is the acid and HSO4- is the conjugate base H2O is considered an acid cause it donates to OH- which is the conjugate base So OH- is the base and H2O is the conjugate acid I think
@Rushwr good to know but I always am mixing them up so that's good to know that I had it this time lol!
Oh ok thank you for the help!!!
As to what I know the lowry bronsted base acquires a proton to become a CONJUGATED ACID while a lowry bronsted acid becomes a a conjugated base after releasing the proton @wampominater
So I agree with u @taramgrant0543664
thank you both of you. you guys are awesome :D
No problem!! :D
hahahahahaha thank you !!!! @wampominater
