What is the relationship between H+ ions and protons?

A hydrogen atom usually has one proton and one electron. To become an H+ ion, it loses its electron.

This means an H+ ion and a proton are the same thing.

The structure of a hydrgen atom is one proton and one electron, there for a H+ ion is stripped of its electron meaning all that’s left is a proton
It turns out that the Hippo (H+) was a pea (proton) in disguise all along!
