Protons taste sour
Or rather, protons are sour.
If nature didn't mean protons to be consumed then they shouldn't have made coca cola so damn tasty
Where is the H3O+ gang?
IDK they drank the water
It's cool. I feel wonderf- *drops dead*
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.
Oh yeahhh...so H30+ and H+ are different chemically I presume?
I prefer H^2+ tbh
Yes that's why H+ addition is also called protonation.
It took me longer than I care to admit to realize this.
H+ is just H3O+
Only in aqueous media.
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.
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.
I can see that, though H+ representation conveys the high charge density that leads to its unusually large hydrodynamic diameter in water.
He²+ is even cooler
He's the alpha.
I wonder what it would taste like
Until you take isotopes into account
Standard convention is to use D for deuterium and T for tritium, so tritiated water would be T_2O.
Yes, but in general, Water always has some proportion of HDO, D2O, etc...
I mean…. Duh
I hate it I hate it I hate it I hate it
I mean the definitions of Bronsted-Lowry acid and base are proton donator and proton acceptor so…
Definitions of every type of acid is completely made up nonsense
I hated this when I first realized it
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-.
I don't like thinking like this
I refuse to call it a proton. The "H Plus" gang represents.
