Answer:

An Arrhenius acid produces #"H"^+# ions in solution and an Arrhenius base produces #"OH"^-# ions in solution.

Explanation:

#"HCl"_"(aq)" rarr "H"^+ +"Cl"^-#

In this case, "HCl" is an Arrhenius acid because it produces #"H"^+# in solution.

#"NaOH"_"(aq)" rarr "Na"^+ + "OH"^-#

In this case, "NaOH" is an Arrhenius acid because it produces #"OH"^-# in solution.
