Question

State the difference between: acid radical and basic radical


Solution

Acid radical is the ion formed after the removal of Hydrogen ion $$(H^+)$$ from an acid. Example: When $$H_2SO_4$$ loses $$H^+$$ ion, it forms $${HSO_4}^-$$ which is an acid radical.
The ion formed after the removal of hydroxide ion $$(OH^-)$$ from a base is known as basic radical. Example: When $$KOH$$ loses $$OH^-$$ ion, it forms $$K^+$$ which is a basic radical.
