We’re being asked to write an equation showing KOH as an Arrhenius acid or 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
Write a chemical equation for KOH(aq) showing how it is an acid or a base according to the Arrhenius definition.
