1.a) All Bronsted-Lowry acids are Lewis acids but not all Lewis acids are Bronsted-Lowry acids. Explain this statement in not more than two sentences.

b) Identify a base and its conjugate acid from this reaction. Explain your reason in one sentence.

HC2H3O2(aq) + H2O(l) <-->H3O+(aq) + C2H3O2-(aq)

2. 0.75 kg charcoal completely burns with a sufficient supply of air. Nothing other than CO2 is produced. How much N2 gas (in Kg) is expected in the outlet gas stream? Air composition (approx.) = 80% N2 and 20% O2 (mol basis only). 

3. A wild rabbit. Would this creature act as sink or a receptor? Explain within two sentences. Name one environmental pollutant that can affect this structure. 

Expert's answer

1.The reverse is not true, not all Lewis acid/base are Bronsted acid/base. The typical example is octet deficient boron compounds like BH3.


3.Behavior. Cottontails are solitary creatures that are most active between dusk and dawn. Generally silent, rabbits may communicate by soft grunts and purrs and by thumping the ground with the hind feet.
