Give an example of weak monobasic acid?

Solution

Weak monobasic acid:

  • The weak acids which give only one hydrogen ion (H+) when dissolved in an aqueous solution are called weak monobasic acids.
  • These acids have only one replaceable hydrogen atom per molecule/ acid.
  • In an acid-base reaction, weak monobasic acids can donate only one hydrogen ion to the base or can accept one hydroxide ion(OH-) from the base in an aqueous solution.
  • They have only one dissociation constant(Ka).
  • Examples of weak monobasic acids are acetic acid(CH3COOH), boric acid(H3BO3), etc.

Hence, an example of weak monobasic acid is acetic acid(CH3COOH).
