Textbook Problem

Write two chemical equations, one that shows H2O reacting (with HBr) as a Brønsted base and a second that shows H2O reacting (with NH3) as a Brønsted acid.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The two chemical reaction should be written, one shows water reacting with HBr and another reaction shows water reacting with ammonia

Concept introduction:

Equilibrium reaction: chemical equilibrium is the state in which both reactants and products are present in concentrations which have no further tendency to change with time therefore no change in the system property in a chemical reaction.

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

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

Explanation

The chemical reactions are shown below

  

HBr dissolves in water which exist as a Bronsted acid (An acid donates H+ ion) and

HBr is strong acid therefore it donates the H+ ion to the water molecule which forms H3O+(aq) and Br-(aq).

The chemical reactions are shown below
