Three Acid-Base Theories

  1. Jul 11, 2007 #1
    I need a little help. In my on-line class they want me to find Acid-Base Theories for Arrhenius, Brønsted-Lowry, and Lewis and to list chemical reactions that demonstrate the action of each acid or base.

    I only found one chemical reactions that demonstrate the action of each acid or base which was

    Arrhenius: acids produce H+ ions in aqueous solutions and bases produce OH- ions in aqueous solutions

    Acid: HCl--> H(+) + Cl (-)
    Base: NaOH--> Na(+) + OH (-)

    Brønsted-Lowry : acids are proton donors
    bases are proton acceptors

    acids are electron pair acceptors
    bases are electron pair donors

    Can some1 tell me examples of chemical reaction for Brønsted-Lowry and Lewis.
    Please and Thank You:wink:

    Also caN YOU HELP ME WITH:

    Which of the three theories is applicable to the greatest number of acids and bases? Explain your reasoning.

    Which theory is most important for the majority of chemistry students?
