How do acids break up ionic bonds?

-- Alison Spring (spring@oswego.edu), October 29, 2002


Ionic bonding is oppositely charged ions that are attracted and bonded together, so when acid is applied to ionic bonds, it breaks up the bonds becuase the chemicals inside the acid makes the oppositely charged ions that are attracted, become unattracted which make the ions react as if they don't want to be bonded together anymore.
