Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Dana on Wednesday, March 25, 2009 at 11:39pm.

Acid is a proton donor and base is a proton accepter?
first of all, please respond to this, i have a huge test tomorrow and would appreciate any help i can get!

According to the Bronsted- Lowry model, acid gives a proton in an acid reaction and the base takes the proton... well given this example...

HCl + H2O ----> H3O + Cl

if the HCL would be the acid, why isn't the Cl H2CL instead because the acid gives a proton.. and why isn't the H3O OH because it loses a proton..

where am i losing it?
also, what would the full name of these pairs be-- would the HCl and the Cl be conjugate acid base pairs?

thank you so much.
