What effect would happen on a sodium hydroxide concentration solution if there was suppose to be maleic acid that contained an acid with the same molar mass but only 1 acidic proton?


Expert Answer

Step 1

An acidic substance is the substance that can give H+ ions. They are corrosive and sour in nature. On the contrary, the substance that gives OH- ions and bitter in taste.

Step 2

The acidic and basic nature of substance can be shown with the help of pH of solution. The pH of solution is negative logarithm of concentration of H+ ions.

Step 3

Maleic acid is dibasic carboxylic acid...
