We are asked which atom in hydroxylamine, NH2OH, accepts a proton when it acts as a base.
Among these three definitions of bases, we only focus on Bronsted-Lowry and Lewis definitions since we are not talking about dissociation.
We need to first draw the Lewis structure of hydroxylamine.
Consider the base hydroxylamine, NH2OH.
When it acts as a base, which atom in hydroxylamine accepts a proton?
