Conceptual Definitions of Acids and Bases
We can ask the same questions about all the different bases, also.
To consider these things we have to use a conceptual approach and come up with some conceptual definitions.
We will deal with three conceptual definitions of acids and bases. They are the Arrhenius, Brønsted-Lowry, and Lewis concepts. Each one has its own merits and disadvantages. Each one provides a perspective on the nature of acids and bases that the others do not. Certain properties of acids and bases are best explained using different concepts. Because of this, those properties will be discussed along with the appropriate concept.
