Problem: Consider molecule A shown below. Remember that for a Lewis structure, you must show all atoms, all bonding valence electrons, all nonbonding valence electrons, and all nonzero formal charges. Using structural considerations, identify which of the two types of Hs (CH or NH) in molecule A is the more acidic one. Provide a clear, concise explanation why one is more acidic than the other.
