Expert Answer:

An acid is a substance which dissociates in water to give hydrogen ions. So, acids are proton donors.

Base dissolves in water to form hydroxide ions.They are proton acceptors.

Neutral product formed as a result of complete reaction between a strong acid and strong base is called salt.
