🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Turnpenny's class at BU.
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
CH3COOH + H2O → CH3COO- + H3O+
H2O + H2O→ OH- + H3O+
Arrhenius acid or base
CH3OH + H2O → CH3O- + H3O+
Which of the following are Arrhenius bases?
