what are the solute particles present in boric acid (H3BO3)?

  • chemistry - ,

    I assume you mean in a water solution.
    I will write it as B(OH)3.
    B(OH)3 + HOH ==> H^+ + B(OH)4^-
    H3BO3 is not a Bronsted-Lowry acid but it acts as a Lewis acid.

    the question was to check all that apply:
    BO33-
    H+
    H3BO22+
    O2-
    H3BO3
    OH -

    It doesn't make sense to me to talk about solute particles when there is no solvent. In water solution the particles would be H^+, H3BO3, and B(OH)4^- but that last one is not listed.
