Postby Jeremy Feng 1A » Sun Dec 09, 2018 9:14 pm

What are some comparisons between amphiprotic and amphoteric molecules? Are there certain characteristics of each type?

These terms describe properties of both acids and bases. Amphiprotic refers to a substance that can either gain or lose a proton, and amphoteric refers to a substance that can act as either an acid or a base.

These words are actually interchangable!
