Solution: Complete these Bronsted-Lowry reactions.HPO42- (aq) +  H+(aq) ⇌HPO42- (aq) + OH-(aq) ⇌

Solution: Complete these Bronsted-Lowry reactions.HPO42- (aq) +  H+(aq) ⇌HPO42- (aq) + OH-(aq) ⇌

Problem

Complete these Bronsted-Lowry reactions.

HPO42- (aq) +  H+(aq) ⇌

HPO42- (aq) + OH-(aq) ⇌

Solution

We’re being asked to complete following Bronsted-Lowry reactions


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


 HPO42- is an amphoteric species it can act as an acid or as a base depending on the reaction conditions


 HPO42-(aq) + H+(aq)
