### Arrhenius Theory

What is the Arrhenius Theory and how can we use it to model a reaction?

Arrhenius theory states that acids dissociate in water to yield electrically charged atoms or molecules (ions), H+, and that bases ionize in water to yield hydroxide ions (OH−).

It basically states that acids ionize in water and produce H+ while bases ionize in water to produce OH-.

from my understanding, the equation helps us account for the factors that impact the rate of a reaction that we don't see in the rate laws
