No Proton Transferred? HW Problem

Postby FizaBaloch1J » Wed Jun 13, 2018 1:55 pm

How do I know there's no proton transferred in this equation? I'm lost because I thought there were protons moving around to different components of the equation?

CH3COOH(aq)  + NH3(aq) --> CH3CONH2(aq) + H2O(l)

I'm pretty sure a proton was transferred around since the hydrogen's are being moved around. What problem is this?

I am reading this post and looking at the book, I think that there should be a transfer of protons because it is an acid-base reaction and as such there should be a proton donor and a proton acceptor. Not sure I am also a bit confused by this.

This does not involve simple proton transfer, so it is not a acid-base reaction.
