Difference between dibasic acid and diprotic acid?

They both mean the same thing:acid molecules with 2 protons: e.g. H2O and H2S and ....H2S --> H+ + HS-HS- --> H+ + S2-The two sulfides (HS- and S2-) are both base, so H2S is dibasic (= forming two bases)Two protons are freed, so H2S is diprotic (= forming two protons)

Which is the stronger acid H2S or H2Se?

H2Se is a stronger acid than H2S. The bond energy of H2Se is less than H2S, making it easier for the hydrogen atom to leave the molecule. Therefore, H2Se is expected to be a stronger acid than H2S.
