There are mainly two types of acids with many examples. They are:

(1) Concentrated acids: As we defined acids earlier, we said acids are substances which produce hydrogen ions when dissolved in water. This is the same definition with concentrated acids. When you try pouring concentrated acids, what happens?. I will end my statement here on concentrated acids.... Sorry, I did not give you examples of concentrated acids. Some examples include hydrochloric acids (HCl), tetraoxosulphateIVacid(H2SO4). I will end here because time waits for nobody. For more details contact me.

(2) Diluted acid: These acids are ones which have been diluted with water as the name implies. These acids, unlike concentrated ones, do not cause harm to the body!. I have indirectly answered one of the questions I asked earlier. Would you like some examples of diluted acids?, here are some: orange, lime, tangerine.
