Which net ionic equation best represents a weak acid-strong base reaction? A. H3BO3 (aq) -> BO3– (aq) + H2O (l) B. 2OH– (aq) -> H2O (I) C. H3BO3 (aq) -> OH– (aq) + H2O (I) D. HB3O3 (aq) -> KOH (aq) + H2O (I) I'm stuck on this /:

    I guess you need to work this out and see what the mechanism would be and how the electrons would go. of course a strong base will remove protons. but it's possible that it may remove all of them. I agree @Rushwr, I think that it's A. |dw:1444629556429:dw| |dw:1444629786785:dw| D. is out that would imply that the reaction didn't happen at all. i don't think it's C either. B. doesn't show us the whole story either.

    "deprotinate each hydrogen" sorry that made absolutely no sense. it's deprotinate the acid.
