Distinguishing between acids and bases

Postby Samantha Chung 4I » Tue Dec 04, 2018 11:17 am

On the final, if it asks us for instance to write an equation showing proton transfer, and we get something like C6H5NH3 +, will we be told whether it behaves as an acid or a base, because this can accept protons and also donate protons?

Most likely, as it would not make sense otherwise. Perhaps the setting of the problem will hint on whether it is used as an acid or base.
