Protons taste sour


Blueflames3520

Or rather, protons are sour.


lRaziel1

If nature didn't mean protons to be consumed then they shouldn't have made coca cola so damn tasty


Ira_deorum_

Where is the H3O+ gang?


Redditlogicking

IDK they drank the water


LichtenbergFigyur

It's cool. I feel wonderf- *drops dead*


wawriwana

Well, my teacher as a "funny exercise" made us ballance a redx with H9O4+ ioins. There was also cromium reduction. From HCrO4- to Cr(H2O)6 3+. It was a monstrocity to ballance.


LichtenbergFigyur

That's sadistic


Wygene

Oh yeahhh...so H30+ and H+ are different chemically I presume?


Mega_Jarizard

I prefer H^2+ tbh


TheRobbie72

Proton-positron railgun


doge57

Cursed


wickedGamer65

Yes that's why H+ addition is also called protonation.


YangWenli1

It took me longer than I care to admit to realize this.


Tulio_58

H+ is just H3O+


Pyrhan

Only in aqueous media.


EdibleBatteries

And even then, H3O+ is just an unsatisfactory compromise that is still an inaccurate description of what a proton does to the long-range arrangement of water molecules.


Pyrhan

I'd say it's an accurate enough description of what H^(+) does in water as far as covalent (or iono-covalent) bonding is concerned. Of course, if you include hydrogen bonding and solvation shells in the picture, it gets far more complicated. But the same is true for every solute.


EdibleBatteries

I can see that, though H+ representation conveys the high charge density that leads to its unusually large hydrodynamic diameter in water.


justsomeothergeek

He²+ is even cooler


Pyrhan

He's the alpha.


DraketheDrakeist

I wonder what it would taste like


ChemistryAndLanguage

Spicy helium


TheyCallMeHacked

Until you take isotopes into account


doge57

Standard convention is to use D for deuterium and T for tritium, so tritiated water would be T_2O.


TheyCallMeHacked

Yes, but in general, Water always has some proportion of HDO, D2O, etc...


yaboytheo1

I mean…. Duh


DBahker

I hate it I hate it I hate it I hate it


andrew_hihi

I mean the definitions of Bronsted-Lowry acid and base are proton donator and proton acceptor so…


realgeneral_memeous

Definitions of every type of acid is completely made up nonsense


realgeneral_memeous

I hated this when I first realized it


Little-Resolution-15

Well, relatively, if we consider periodic properties, H is really anomalous. It’s H+ is indeed same size to that of a proton. While hydride, H-, is larger than most of the halides except Iodide, I-.


EmptyEnvironment2595

I don't like thinking like this


YourAmishNeighbor

I refuse to call it a proton. The "H Plus" gang represents.
