Difference between % calculations

Postby Madeline Musselman 3H » Sat Dec 09, 2017 11:04 am

What is the difference between deprotonation and protonation percentage? and what do the elements within the equation represent?

Both refer to how much of the initial reactant was used up or converted into product. For acids, this would be considered deprotonation because acid donate their protons. For bases, this would be considered protonation because they accept protons.

It is helpful to think of these calculations as percent yield. Also the numerator and denominator can represent molarity or moles
