We’re being asked to determine the reaction that occurs if O2- ions are added to water, H2O.
Let’s first define a Bronsted-Lowry Acid and a Bronsted-Lowry Base to determine the reaction that occurs:
Bronsted-Lowry acid→ proton (H+) donor
Bronsted-Lowry base→ proton (H+) acceptor
Relative strengths of select conjugate acid-base pairs. The two members of each pair are listed opposite each other in the two columns.
If ions O2- are added to water, what reaction, if any, occurs?
