Acid

A substance that when dissolved in water dissociates and can donate a hydrogen (proton) to another molecule. Examples include sulphuric acid and nitric acid. Under these conditions nitric acid dissociates according to the following equation:

acid

any chemical compound, one element of which is hydrogen, that dissociates in solution to produce free hydrogen ions.

Acid

There are three definitions - Arrhenius, Bronsted, and Lewis Acids. In the Lewis conception, which is the most general and useful, an acid is essentially any compound that needs electrons, and a base is basically any compound that wants to give them away.

Acid

An Acid is a substance containing hydrogen in its molecules (or ions) that it can release as H+ ions. The Bronsted-Lowry definition of an acid is that it is a 'proton donor'. By strength of an acid is meant the tendency with which it will donate H+ ions; the stronger the acid the more readily it will donate H+ ions....

Acid

Used as an adjective to describe sharp or sour flavours. Acidity is a vital component of wine: it helps red wines keep their colour and gives white wines their balance. Too much acidity, and a wine is tart and unpleasant; too little and the wine is 'flabby' and uninteresting. Grapes start out with high concentrations of organic acids which then dis...

A substance that produces H+(aq) ions in aqueous solution. Strong acids ionize completely or almost completely in dilute aqueous solution. Weak acids ionize only slightly. Acids taste sour, turn litmus red, gives a solution with a pH of less than 7 when dissolved in water and often react with some metals to produce hydrogen gas.

acid

Acid is a type of compound that contains hydrogen and dissociates in water to produce positive hydrogen ions. The reaction, for an acid HA is commonly written: HA H+ + A- In fact, the hydrogen ion (the proton) is solvated, and the complete reaction is: HA + H2O H3O+ + A- This definition of acids comes from the Arrhenius theory. Such acids tend to...
