# What are the solute particles present in aqueous solutions of Acetic Acid?

## When it's dissolved in water, does it only produce H^+, CH_3COO^- or more?

Hydronium ion, ${H}_{3} {O}^{+}$, acetic acid, and acetate ion.
${H}_{3} C - C \left(= O\right) O H + {H}_{2} O r i g h t \le f t h a r p \infty n s {H}_{3} - C \left(= O\right) {O}^{-} + {H}_{3} {O}^{+}$
$p {K}_{a}$ $=$ $4.76$. The equilibrium would lie strongly to the left. Of course, the acidium or hydronium ion is very much a formalism. As far as anyone knows it is a cluster of water molecules with an extra ${H}^{+}$ species. ${H}_{3} {O}^{+}$ is our conception of this species.
