HC2H3O2 is commonly known as Acetic acid. As the name suggests, this compound is an acid. Generally an acid, is a proton donor, has a pH below 7, neutralizes base and turns blue litmus paper to red. This also means that in a solution (in water) HC2H3O2 produces Hydronium ions (H3O+ ions).
The chemical equation for the dissociation of Perchloric acid (HC2H3O2) in the solution can be written as:
HC2H3O2 (aq) + H2O <---> H3O+ + CH3CO2-
**hydronium ions can be represented as H3O+ or simply H+.
Acetic acid is classified as a weak acid
