High School Teacher
H+ ions does not exist independly because of its chemical properties due to the lack of neutrons. An H+ ion is made up of one proton and one electron. It is the basis of acids and bases and it is what gives the pH value. However, just like OH- ions does not exist independently, because of the H+ lack of stablility and its properties made it dependable on other substances.
Hope this help.
