Could a Bronsted-Lowry acid not be an Arrhenius acid? Explain.

Could someone explain the answer to me?

  3. In theory, yes.

    Bronsted acid is capable of donating a H^+ to ** any ** other compound, not necessarily water. Arrhenius based his definition on the ability to donate H+ to water. So of you have a substance (solvent) which is a weaker acid than water, then a Bronsted acid will be able to donate an H+ to this substance, but the same acid will not be able to donate an H+ to water...

    For other questions, I would like to talk to you... by phone... so that I can also give you websites that attest to my credentials in chemistry..
