Homework 12.109- hydronium and hydroxide ions

Postby Martha Xuncax 3G » Fri Nov 18, 2016 5:19 pm

"Hydronium and hydroxide ions appear to move through water much faster than other kinds of ions. Explain this observation."
I didn't really understand the book's answer, can someone explain this?

The hydronium and hydroxide ions do move around, but it is actually the transferring of protons (H+), resulting in the creation of new hydronium and hydroxide ions that gives the appearance of swift movement.
