In autoprotolysis a proton is transferred between two identical molecules, one of which releases a proton which is accepted by the other molecule. Ex. H20 + H20 -> h30+ + OH-

It is when a molecule transfers a proton to another one of the same molecule.

Autoprotolysis is proton transfer between the same type of molecule.

It basically means that a proton is transferred between the same molecule. For example, 2H2O(l) <-> H30+(aq) + OH-(aq).

It is the transfer of a proton between the same type of molecule. An example of it would be 2H2O H3O + OH

Lavelle talked about autoprotolysis a lot throughout lectures, so I wouldnt be surprised to see it show up on the test. Definitions above are good, i would say definitely know the equation and be able to explain it, which shouldnt be that hard if you have a rough understanding of what it is.

It is helpful to know since the autoprotolysis constant of water, Kw, is used to calculate hydronium and hydroxide concentration. That helps us determine if the solution is more acidic or basic.

What are some other common examples of autoprotolysis besides water?

Autoprotolysis is proton transfer between the same type of molecule. In this class, water was the example. 2H20 <-> h3o+ + oh-

Ammonia and acetic acid can also both undergo autoprolysis.

Protolysis is a process that occurs with polyprotic substances. There are occurrences where a molecule can give another of the same type of molecule a proton.

It is proton transfer between two of the same molecule. For example, if we have two water molecules, one can donate a proton to the other, and result in OH- and H30+ molecules.
