Textbook Problem

Write the balanced reaction of hydroxide ion with hydrofluoric acid, HF, to form fluoride ion and water. Identify each species as either an acid or a base.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

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.

Explanation

The reaction of hydroxide ion with hydrofluoric acid can be written as

OH-(aq) + HF(aq)   F-(aq) + H2O(aq)

Now, we can write the as an acid and base for the each species form the Bronsted-Lowry theory as represented as follows.

OH-(aq) + HF(aq
