## Give the formula of any Brǿnsted-Lowry acid and Write the chemical equation for the autoionization of water?

$H C l$ is a Bronsted Lowry acid.

#### Explanation:

The autoionization of water may be represented in the following way:

$2 {H}_{2} O r i g h t \le f t h a r p \infty n s {H}_{3} {O}^{+} + H {O}^{-}$

${K}_{w} = \left[{H}_{3} {O}^{+}\right] \left[H {O}^{-}\right] = {10}^{- 14} \text{ at 298K}$

Under non-standard conditions, e.g. $T = 350 K$, how do you think the equilibrium constant would evolve? Would it increase, decrease, stay the same? Remember that, as written, the given equilibrium is a bond-breaking reaction.
