The balanced reaction of hydroxide ion with hydrofluoric acid has to be written and each of species as either an acid or a base has to be idenfied. Concept introduction: Acid: According to Bronsted-Lowry theory, a species which donates a proton in a proton transfer-reaction is said to be an acid. Base: According to Bronsted-Lowry theory, a species which accepts a proton in a proton transfer-reaction is said to be base. Strong acid: According to Arrhenius theory, a compound or a substance which completely ionized in a aqueous solution to give a hydronium ion and anion is said to be strong acid. Strong base: According to Arrhenius theory, a compound or a substance which completely ionized in a aqueous solution to give a hydroxide ion and cation is said to be strong base.
