Is there a difference between using a single arrow or an equilibrium arrow in a chemical reaction between acids and bases? Does it all depend on the complete/incomplete deprotonation/protonation of hydrogen ions in a reaction? thanks
Hey! You use a reverse arrow when the reaction does not involve a strong acid or a strong base! When a strong acid or base is present, you use a single sided arrow because the acid/base dissociates basically completely.
