11 ACIDS AND BASES We are familiar with acids and bases and their reactions from last semester. We will spend the next few lectures looking at acid—base reac- tions in the context of equilibrium Brønstad Acids and Bases Our fi rst de fi nition of an acid or base is what called the Brønstad- Lowry concept of an acid or base.
