Answer:

Acids ionize to produce hydrogen ions in solutions.

Explanation:

The Arrhenius Theory of Acids and Bases states that:

  1. Acids ionize to produce hydrogen ions in solutions,
  2. Bases dissociates to produce hydroxide ions in solutions.

Acids tend to occur in compounds with non-metals. Thus, when it is mixed into a solution with water, the hydrogen and anion (hydrogen acts as a cation) dissolve into the water.

Hope this helps :)
