Answer:

Any Arrhenius acid.

Explanation:

An Arrhenius acid is defined as a substance that introduces #H^+# ions in solution. There are other definitions of an acid that are broader than this, but one that specifically introduces #H^+# in solution is called an Arrhenius acid.

Some examples are #HCl#, #HNO_3#, #H_2SO_4#, and #CH_3COOH#
