Acid structure

Postby Ashley Martinez 1G » Sun Jun 10, 2018 10:50 pm

Is there a Lewis structure that implies acidity? One of the UA's mentioned an association but I am still confused about the logic behind it. She was referring to CH3COOH in her explanation. I would appreciate any clarification, thanks!

Most times an acid will start with H and end in the COOH box, but that does not happen every time.

-COOH means a carboxylic acid group is in the molecule
