Chemically, water is amphoteric — i.e., it is able to act as either an acid or a base. Occasionally the term hydroxic acid is used when water acts as an acid in a chemical reaction. At a pH of 7 (neutral), the concentration of hydroxide ions (OH−) is equal to that of the hydronium (H3O+) or hydrogen (H+) ions. If the equilibrium is disturbed, the solution becomes acidic (higher concentration of hydronium ions) or basic (higher concentration of hydroxide ions).

Water can act as either an acid or a base in reactions. According to the Brønsted-Lowry system, an acid is defined as a species which donates a proton (an H+ ion) in a reaction, and a base as one which receives a proton. When reacting with a stronger acid, water acts as a base; when reacting with a stronger base, it acts as an acid. For instance, it receives an H+ ion from HCl in the equilibrium:

HCl + H2O ? H3O+ + Cl−
Here water is acting as a base, by receiving an H+ ion.

In the reaction with ammonia, NH3, water donates an H+ ion, and is thus acting as an acid:

NH3 + H2O ? NH4+ + OH−

Hybridization of sulphur in SO 3 IS.................................................???????????????
 
 
Gowri Sankar,Hybridization of sulphur in SO 3 is SP 2 hybridization.Because It has 3 sigms bonds with three oxygen atoms.
 
SAI SARDAR one month ago
 
the hybridization of including sigma and pi bonds. Note that the so3 hybridization is sp for the central carbon atom. It's sp2 for each of the oxygen atoms as well.

my dear gowri the hybridisation of supher tri oxide is sp2 and it has oxygenated 3 sigma bonds,hybridisation is the main basic of fundamental chemistry.
