What is the Arrhenius definition of acid?
Acids ionize to produce hydrogen ions in solutions.
The Arrhenius Theory of Acids and Bases states that:
- Acids ionize to produce hydrogen ions in solutions,
- 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 :)
