The acid here HA donates the Hydrogen (H) ion and the Base (B) accepts the ion resulting in the hydrogen ion having a positive charge and A- has a negative charge since it donated an ion

This is the same as before but using different elements in this one the Hydrogen is removed from the base and is then accepted in the acid.
