Homework Help: Chemistry

Explain why acetic acid has four hydrogens, but is a monoprotic acid

The formula for acetic acid is CH3COOH so yes it does have four hydrogens. But the only hydrogen that is able to easily come off and be donated to another molecule is the H from COOH and thus it is a monoprotic acid.
Hope this helps!
