Solution

## An acid is a substance in which the only positive ion is hydrogen.A dibasic acid is a substance that produces two hydrogen ions, $\left({\mathrm{H}}^{+}\right)$ per molecule of acid, when it gets completely dissociated in water. For example, Sulfuric acid $\left({\mathrm{H}}_{2}{\mathrm{SO}}_{4}\right)$.The chemical equation is as follows:${\mathrm{H}}_{2}{\mathrm{SO}}_{4}\left(\mathrm{aq}\right)⇌2{\mathrm{H}}^{+}\left(\mathrm{aq}\right)+{{\mathrm{SO}}_{4}}^{2-}\left(\mathrm{aq}\right)$
