Amphoteric- molecule being able to react as both acid and base in different cases
Amphiprotic- Can both accept and donate H+.

amphiprotic means it can both accept and donate a proton.
amphoteric means it can act as both an acid and base.
therefore a substance is automatically amphiprotic if it is amphoteric.
