Dear student,

An acidic hydrogen atom is a hydrogen atom that has lost its electron and is running around as a hydrogen ion. The lone proton (in 1H) has loaned out its electron in a chemical reaction, like to chlorine in HCl, and when HCl is combined with water, the H and the Cl separate into H+ and Cl- ions. That H+ ion is the acidic hydrogen atom.
