Basic Oxide Reaction with an Acid

Postby Alex Nguyen 3I » Thu Nov 26, 2015 12:18 pm

For the reaction , the base accepts two protons from the hydronium ions present in the hydrochloric acid solution. Is it assumed that all acidic solutions have ions that can be used?

I believe you can assume this because, by definition, if a solution is acidic, then it contains H3O+ ions. I think what we need to figure out is if the base (O2- in this case) is strong enough to break the H3O+ bond and accept the H+ ions to form a base.
