Solution: Write a chemical equation for Sr(OH)2(aq) showing how it is an acid or a base according to the Arrhenius definition.

Solution: Write a chemical equation for Sr(OH)2(aq) showing how it is an acid or a base according to the Arrhenius definition.

Problem

Write a chemical equation for Sr(OH)2(aq) showing how it is an acid or a base according to the Arrhenius definition.

Solution

We’re being asked to determine if the given compound, Sr(OH)2, is an Arrhenius acid or 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
