Bronsted-Lowry acid→ proton (H+) donor
Bronsted-Lowry base → proton (H+) acceptor
Lewis acid→ electron pair acceptor.
Lewis base→ electron pair donor.
Which of the following statements is true?
NH2- can be a Bronsted-Lowry acid
CH3CH3 can be a Bronsted-Lowry base
CH3+ can be a Lewis acid
NH2- can be a Bronsted-Lowry acid and CH3CH3 can be a Bronsted-Lowry base
CH3CH3 can be a Bronsted-Lowry acid and CH3+ can be a Bronsted-Lowry base
