. Are carboxylic acids typically strong acids or weak acids? Write an equation showing the acid CH3CH2COOH ionizing in water.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Determine the acidity of carboxylic acid and further description about acid ionizing in water with respect to CH3CH2COOH.

Concept Introduction:

Acid is some sort of chemical which provides protons or hydrogen ions and/or accepts electrons. Usually acids contain a hydrogen atom bonded that can release (dissociate) to produce cation and anion in water, which is called as acid ionization.

Carboxylic acid is comprised of COOH group.

Introductory Chemistry: A Foundation, Chapter 20, Problem 76QAP

Explanation

Acid is some sort of chemical which provides protons or hydrogen ions and/or accepts electrons. Usually acids contain a hydrogen atom bonded that can release (dissociate) to produce a cation and anion in water, which is called as acid ionization.

Carboxylic acid is comprised of COOH group.

The General formula of a carboxylic acid is RCOOH, where R represents the hydrocarbon fragment. Terminal Hydrogen which is connected to O atom, tend to be removed in aqueous medium and act as an acid (provide hydrogen ionsto the medium). The ionization equation of carboxylic acids in water can be described as follows according to the general formula.

RCOOH(aq)+H2O(l) H3O+(aq)+RCOO(aq)

Systematic name for CH3CH2COOH is propanoic acid and common name is propionic acid. In propionic acid, R is substituted by CH3CH2 group
