The Chemistry of Acids & Bases 2 In each of the acid examples---notice the formation of H3O+-- this species is named the hydronium ionIt lets you know that the solution is acidic( hydronium, H3O+--H+riding piggy-back on a water molecule; water is polar and the + charge of the “naked” proton is greatly attracted to Mickey's chin!) NH3+ H2O RNH4++ OH−neutral compound base acid CA CO32−+ H2O RHCO3−+ OH−anion base acid CA PO43−+ H2O RHPO42−+ OH−anion base acid CA Notice the formation of OH−in each of the alkaline examples. This species is named the hydroxide ionIt lets you know that the resulting solution is basicYou try!! Exercise 1a) In the following reaction, identify the acid on the left and its CB on the right. Similarly identify the base on the left and its CA on the right. . ! CB CB CB . !
