Deprotonation

Postby Ethan Breaux 2F » Tue Jan 22, 2019 12:11 am

Can someone give a good/simple explanation of deprotonation is and how to use the percentage in problems?

Deprotonation is when you add water to any molecule in a chemical equation and the product becomes H+/H3O+ with the conjugate base. When you solve for percent deprotonation, it is the concentration of the H+/H3O+ divided by the initial (given) concentration multiplied by 100%.

I hope this helps.
