We’re being asked to determine which of the following given compounds is an Arrhenius base


Recall that according to the Arrhenius definition:

 An Arrhenius acid increases the concentration of H+ ion when dissolved

An Arrhenius base increases the concentration of OH ion when dissolved


(a) CH3COOH 

CH3COOH + H2O → CH3COO- + H3O+

Arrhenius acid

(b) HOH 

H2O + H2O→ OH- + H3O+

Arrhenius acid or base

(c) CH3OH 

CH3OH  + H2O → CH3O- + H3O+
