  1. Aha! Homework dumping, I see.

    Don't count on any replies from our chemistry tutors unless you add YOUR OWN THOUGHTS to your posts.

  2. Where is the arrow?
    NH3 + HOH ==> NH4^+ + OH^-
    Remember the Bronsted-Lowry theory says that the acid is the molecule that donates a proton. Which molecule on the left has one less H^+ on the right? The molecule on the left then is the acid. The other molecule is the base.
