Re: How can you tell if an acid/base is polyprotic?

Lauren Sanchez 3D wrote:I remember hearing about the term amphiprotic. What is the difference between amphiprotic and polyprotic?



polyprotic is the ability of an acid to donate multiple protons (H+) while amphiprotic means a substance can act as an acid and a base.
