EXAMPLE - Identification of Acids and Bases:
Identify (a) H2C2O4, (b) NaNO2, (c) H2SO4, (d) NaHCO3, (e) LiH2PO4, (f) potassium hydroxide, (g) sodium nitrate, (h) sulfurous acid, (i) hydrobromic acid, and (j) ammonia as either (1) an Arrhenius strong acid, (2) an Arrhenius weak acid, (3) an Arrhenius strong base, (4) an Arrhenius weak base, or (5) not acidic or basic in the Arrhenius sense (neutral).
