Explain the behaviour of an acid on being dissolved in water.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 24th Jul, 2017, 01:02: PM
Strong acids like Hydrochloric acid dissolve in water completely and produce H+ ions which combine with water to give Hydronium ions.
HCl + H2O → H3O+ + Cl-
Weak acids like acetic acid dissolve partially in water to give hydrogen ion and acetate ion.
CH3COOH + H2O H3O+ + CH3COO-
