Draw the Lewis structure of boric acid, B(OH)3. (a) Is resonance important for its description? (b) The proton transfer equilibrium for boric acid is given in a footnote to Table 6C.1. In that reaction does boric acid act as a Lewis acid, a Lewis base, or neither? Justify your answer by using Lewis structures of boric acid and its conjugate base.

Please specify what your confusion is. Simply rewriting the entire problem will not count as a valid post
