posted by princess on .
Use the acid-base reaction HI + CsOH CsI + H2O to answer the following questions.
i. What is the Arrhenius acid and what is the Arrhenius base in the above reaction?
Arrhenius acids produce H^+ in solution. Wouldn't HI be an Arrhenius acid?
HI ==> H^+ + I^-
Arrhenius bases produce OH^- in solution? Wouldn't that be CsOH?
CsOH ==> Cs^+ + OH^-
