% protonated

Postby Jorja De Jesus 2C » Sat Jan 18, 2020 11:39 pm

When calculating the percent protonated, what is being protonated and when do you need to know if it is protonated?

When finding the percent protonated, the molecule giving off the H+ ion is the one becoming protonated. This is necessary to make sure the calculations are precise and the error in rounding is not too large. You will need to know if the questions ask for this.

When finding the percentage protonated, whatever is receiving a proton is being protonated. A base accepts protons. You'll need to know if it is protonated depending on what the question is asking.

Since being protonated is accepting H+, we know that it will appear on the right side of the equation as being the protonated product of the reactant.
