what happens to your internal organs if you swallow acids or bases?
what happens to your skin if it comes in contact with bases and acids?
Lewis acids are electron pair acceptors. Therefore, if they come into contact with your organs or skins, they pull electrons away from vital cell components, wreaking havoc on your body. This accounts for the "burn" you experience after coming into contact with an acid. The stronger and more concentrated the acid, the more powerful effect it can have. I could go far more into detail on the physiological and biochemical effects of both...what course are you taking and to what depth is the answer supposed to be?
i'm doing this for a science fair and
i need an idea of what i'll be doing
