How are acids and bases different?
Because an acid produces a hydrogen ion (H+) as it disassociates
in water, while a base produces a hydroxide ion, (OH-) as it
disassociates in water
Depends on the definition of acid and base.
Bronsted acid is a proton donor (HCl)
Lewis acid is a lone pair receptor (anything with an open orbital)
Bronsted base is a hydroxide donor or proton receptor (KOH)
Lewis base is a lone pair donor. (R-CN)
