Question:

Identify the acid-base pairs in the following reactions {eq}HSO4^-(aq) + OH^- \rightleftharpoons SO4^{2-}(aq) + H_2)(l) {/eq}

Properties of Acids and Bases:

Arrhenius defined acids as proton donating species and bases as hydroxyl donating species in aqueous solutions.

Bronsted and Lowry defined acids as proton donor and bases as proton acceptor species.

Thus, an acid and a base can be identified in a reaction by their proton behavior.
