You have an acid that dissociates partially in solution. Is this a strong or weak acid? Explain.
A common model that is used to classify substances as acids or bases is the Bronsted-Lowry Model. This model classifies an acid as a proton donor. We can track the movement of protons in a neutralization reaction to determine the Bronsted-Lowry acid.
Answer and Explanation: 1
The acid is a weak acid.
- By definition, a weak acid dissociates partially in an aqueous solution.
- Examples of weak acids include carbonic acid and...
