We’re being asked to write a chemical equation for NH4+(aq) showing how it is an acid or a base according to the Arrhenius definition.
Recall that according to the Arrhenius definition:
• An Arrhenius acid increases the concentration of H3O+ (or H+) ion when dissolved
• An Arrhenius base increases the concentration of OH– ion when dissolved
Write a chemical equation for NH4+(aq) showing how it is an acid or a base according to the Arrhenius definition.
