Solution: Which one of the following is a diprotic acid?a. sulfuric acidb. nitric acidc. barium hydroxided. chloric acid

Problem

Which one of the following is a diprotic acid?

a. sulfuric acid

b. nitric acid

c. barium hydroxide

d. chloric acid

Solution

We are being asked to identify the diprotic acid among the given acids. 

A diprotic acid is an acid that can donate two hydronium ions (H+). 


We have to write the chemical formula based on the name of each acid to determine which can donate two H+ ions.

(a) sulfuric acid
