An Arrhenius acid produces ${\text{H}}^{+}$ ions in solution and an Arrhenius base produces ${\text{OH}}^{-}$ ions in solution.

#### Explanation:

${\text{HCl"_"(aq)" rarr "H"^+ +"Cl}}^{-}$

In this case, "HCl" is an Arrhenius acid because it produces ${\text{H}}^{+}$ in solution.

${\text{NaOH"_"(aq)" rarr "Na"^+ + "OH}}^{-}$

In this case, "NaOH" is an Arrhenius acid because it produces ${\text{OH}}^{-}$ in solution.
