Definitions of acids and bases

Arrhenius
acid: generates [H+] in solution

normal Arrhenius equation:

Example:
 acid + base salt + water
 HCl + NaOH NaCl + H2O
Definitions of acids and bases
Bronsted-Lowery:
acid: anything that donates a [H+] (proton donor)

acceptor)

 acid + base acid + base

Example:
Each acid has a conjugate
base and each base has a HNO2 + H2O NO2- + H3O+
conjugate acid. These
conjugate pairs only differ by
a proton. In this example:
HNO2 is the acid, H2O is the
base, NO2- is the conj. base,
and H3O+ is the conj. acid.
Definitions of acids and bases

Lewis
acid: accepts an electron pair

The advantage of this theory is that many

more reactions can be considered acid-base
reactions because they do not have to occur in
solution.
