তবে এটা খুব দুর্বল এসিড। তাই সেরকম উল্লেখযোগ্য বিক্রিয়া এটা করে না।(আমার জানা মতে)

Anything that has mass, or weight, and that occupies space is called matter, liquid is one form of matter. We can call liquids acids or bases. An acid is a solution that has many H+ ions. Acid release a hydrogen ion (H+) into a solution with water.
H+(aq) + H2O(l) H3O+(aq)
Nucleic acid can supply proton and it possesses acidic character.
