sir could you please explain me briefly about the hydronium ions
Asked by Megha | 19th Jun, 2014, 03:37: PM
Hydronium ion (H3O+) is a water molecule having an extra hydrogen ion attached to it. The reaction is as follows:
( H2O + H+→ H3O+).
It is used to determine the acidity of a chemical compound. When a compound is dissolved in water solution, the more the hydronium ion is produced, the higher the acidity is.
For example: HCl(aq)+ H2O(l) Cl-+ H3O+ . Thus, the Hydrogen ion is transferred to water molecule.
