Solution

When an acids dissolve in water. The H+ ion from acid always goes to the nearest water molecule to form hydronium ion.

HCl(aq)+H2O(aq)→H3O+(aq)+Cl-(aq)

For example : When Hydrochloric acid(HCl) is a strong acid. When it is dissolved in water, HCl is ionized completely in aqueous solution.  Hydrochloric acid will donates its proton H+ to water molecule to form a hydronium cation H3O+and chloride anions Cl- .
