write the dissociation of acetic acid identifying the base,acid,H donor, and H receiver

C2H4O2+H2O - H3O+C2H3O2

is hydronium the H donor and is C2H3O2 the base?

  • Chem -

    water is the base(H+ acceptor) and C2H4O2 is the acid(H+ donor) so Hydronium is the conjugate acid and C2H3O2 is the Conjugate base.
