Forming hydronium or hydroxide

Postby Melissa Villanueva1K » Thu Jan 24, 2019 9:23 pm

When we are writing out a chemical equation, how do we know whether the molecule forms hydronium or hydroxide when added in water? Thanks!

Depends if it is an acid or a base, an acid will generate hydronium and a base will generate hydroxide
