I don't completely understand everything that goes on when an acid ionizes in a solution. (With Arrhenious bases, the textbook says they "dissociate" in solution to release hydroxide ions into the solution. )
b. NH3 as Arrhenious base
NH3 + H20 yields NH4 + OH
a. Ionization of HClO3 in water
I would think that it would react with water and remove a hydrogen, leaving OH- but the equation is HClO3 + H2O yields H3O+ + ClO3-.
I don't understand like... how to know when OH is going to form and when it isn't; are Arrhenious bases when the easiest products to form involve OH?
