Question

H+ ions released by acids combine with water to form ______ ions.



Your Answer
A
H+
Correct Answer
B
H3O+
Your Answer
C
H2O
Your Answer
D
OH

Solution

The correct option is D H3O+
When acids are dissolved in water H+ ions are released in water. The H+ ions released in a solution have no independent existence, i.e,. they are not stable on their own.

Therefore, they combine with the water molecules present in the solution to form hydronium ions (H3O+). These ions formed during the dissociation of acids in water is the basis of the properties of various acids.
