Let’s first define a Bronsted-Lowry Acid and a Bronsted-Lowry Base.
Bronsted-Lowry acid → proton (H+) donor
Bronsted-Lowry base → proton (H+) acceptor
•amphoteric species – it can act as an acid or as a base depending on the reaction conditions
Rank the given compounds based on their relative Bronsted acidities.
