Acetic acid has 4 hydrogen atoms in its molecule but is a monobasic acid.Why?
Asked by swatidutta448 | 21st Jan, 2020, 02:02: PM
Acetic acid has 4 hydrogens. It donates only one H, which is attached to Oxygen, Other 3 H are attached to Carbon, there is not much difference iof electronegativity in C and H in acetic acid so these 3 H can not be released.
So basicity of Acetic acid = 1.
