Are lewis acids actually acidic in the sense where they'll turn up acidic through pH tests? Are any of our everyday substances such as detergents or foods Lewis acids or Lewis bases but not Bronsted Acids and bases?
I'm actually not sure either, I would like to know this as well. Lewis acids are lone pair acceptors and lewis bases are lone pair donors, but I'm not sure how this relates to the pH scale.
When do we know when one molecule is more acidic than another? if we are talking about the same atoms but the different amount of them, would it be safe to say that the one with more atoms tend to be more or less acidic?
