Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The balanced equation for the ionization of nitric acid in water should be given.

Concept introduction:

The law of conservation of mass states that no atoms can be created or destroyed in a chemical reaction, therefore, the number of atoms present in the reactants is equal to the number of atoms present in the products.

Bronsted acid: An acid donates (loses)H+ ion.

Bronsted Base: A base accepts (gains)H+ ion.
