J.13 B

The question asks us to identify the acid and the base in each of the following reactions
CH3NH2(aq) + CH3COOH(aq) --> CH3NH3+(aq) + CH3CO2-(aq)

I identified CH3NH2 as the base and CH3COOH as the acid. Is this correct? At first I thought it was the other way around, but after looking at the products, I saw that CH3NH2 gained a proton, making it a bronsted base and CH3COOH released a proton, making it a bronsted acid.

Yes, CH3COOH is the acid and CH3NH2 is the base!
