There are two equilibria, one between the deprotonated amide (one hydrogen, negative charge) and the amide (two hydrogens, neutral), and the other between the amide (two hydrogens, neutral) and the protonated amide (three hydrogens, positive charge). The major species is the one in the middle. If you try hard to protonate an amide in aqueous solution, the ...
