Reactions (a) and (b) could represent a Bronsted acid-base reaction.
Work Step by Step
- Identify the reactions where a molecule is giving (Acid) one hydrogen, and the other molecule is receiving this proton. - In (a), the blue molecule is acting like an acid, and the red one, like a base. - In (b), the blue molecule is acting like a base, and the red one, like an acid.
