Polyprotic acids can donate more than one proton. Protons are donated with the acidity constant (K) decreasing significantly with each proton lost Ka1>>ka2>>ka3. However, for most polyprotic acids (except Sulfuric acid), only the first deprotonation (Ka1) should be taken into account since all subsequent deprotonations do not affect pH significantly so are ignored.
