Acoording To Arrhenius Theory
Base:-
an Arrhenius base is a substance that dissociates in water to form hydroxide (OH−) ions; that is, a base increases the concentration of OH− ions in an aqueous solution.
Acid:-
an Arrhenius acid is a substance that dissociates in water to form hydrogen ions (H+);   that is, an acid increases the concentration of H+ ions in an aqueous solution
