in the book it says acetic acid releases one hydrogen ion to water and any other Bronsted base present in the solution. Does that mean if there was more than one base it would donate more than one H, or will it only ever donate the last H?
Acetic acid only loses the hydrogen that is attached to the oxygen because of oxygen's electronegativity. The nonpolar bond between carbon and hydrogen prevents the hydrogens from being donated since electrons are equally shared.
