We’re being asked to determine which of the following given compounds is an Arrhenius base.
Recall that according to the Arrhenius definition:
• An Arrhenius acid increases the concentration of H+ ion when dissolved
• An Arrhenius base increases the concentration of OH– ion when dissolved
CH3COOH + H2O → CH3COO- + H3O+
H2O + H2O→ OH- + H3O+
Arrhenius acid or base
CH3OH + H2O → CH3O- + H3O+
Which of the following are Arrhenius bases?
