Name one difference between acids and bases in terms of:

-Their chemical formula

-A property

Any help would be awesome.

  • Chemistry -

    Actually, it all depends upon the definition being used for an acid and a base. If you are using the Arrhenius theory, then
    acids produce H^+ (technically H3O^+) and bases produce OH^- in water solution.
    Acids turn blue litmus paper red; bases turn red litmus paper blue.
    Acids taste sour; bases are slick to the touch.
