Expert Answer

Step 1

Arrhenius Acids and Bases:

Acid release hydrogen ion in water, Base release hydroxide ions in water.

Bronsted –Lowry definitions:

A Bronsted –Lowry acid is a proton donor, it donates a hydrogen ion,. A Bronsted-Lowry base is a proton acceptor, it accepts a hydrogen ion.

Step 2

Lewis definition:

A Lewis acid is a substance that can accept and share an electron pair. A Le...
