Some of the proton production of an acid happens due to temperature and some of the proton production of an acid happens due to quantum tunnelling.But if we increase the temperature a lot the proton will have enough energy to ovetcome the potential barrier of the electrostatic attraction between the proton and the dipole water molecule and the concentration of H3O+ will be decreased.Is acidity then reduced above a certain temperature or do we need to redifine what strength of an acid means?

  • $\begingroup$ ?What do you mean?I know acidity is increased with increase in temperature but above a certain temperature it should be reduced. $\endgroup$ – Mrs Chemistry Nov 13 at 8:27
  • $\begingroup$ Since acidity is measured in concentration of H30+. $\endgroup$ – Mrs Chemistry Nov 13 at 8:40
