HBr

Postby rachelle1K » Sat Nov 30, 2019 8:17 pm

Is the reaction for HBr in water HBr(aq) + H2O(aq) ---> Br-(aq) + H3O+(aq)

In general, how do we know what to write for the reaction?

That seems correct to me because the HBr has a H that is can give up to the water, which would act as a base. Br wouldn't be able to fit another proton either.

I believe this is correct because the H+ fully dissoctiates from HBr and bonds with the H20.

It is helpful for me to remember that if I'm writing out the dissociation of an acid, one of the products will usually be hydronium (H3O), and if I'm writing out the dissociation of a base, one of the products will be hydroxide (OH).
