  1. Adding acid will make the water (if neutral at the beginning) to acidic; adding base will make the water become basic if it is neutral initially.

    Acetic acid, CH3CO2H, is the active ingredient in vinegar. It's often abbreviated "HOAc". Vinegar is acidic because acetic acid makes H3O+ when it partially ionizes in water: HOAc(aq) + H2O H3O+(aq) + OAc–(aq) Suppose that
