How do you find conjugate acids and bases?
Identify Conjugate Acid Base Pairs (Bronsted Lowry) –
What is the conjugate base?
Conjugate Base Definition
When an acid dissociates into its ions in water, it loses a hydrogen ion. The conjugate base is able to gain or absorb a proton in a chemical reaction. The conjugate acid donates the proton or hydrogen in the reaction.
What is the conjugate base of h2so3?
The hydrogen sulfite, or bisulfite, ion is the ion HSO3-. It is the conjugate base of sulfurous acid, H2SO3.
What is the conjugate base of hso4?
HSO4- is a base since it has the ability to accept a proton but it is a conjugate base to H2SO4 since it is formed by the H2SO4 after donating a proton. The conjugate base of HSO4- is SO4 (2-), if that’s the question that you are asking.
Is CN an acid or base?
|6.2 * 10-8||Hydrogen sulfite ion||S2-|
|2.9 * 10-8||Hypochlorous acid||ClO-|
|6.2 * 10-10||Hydrocyanic acid||CN-|
|5.8 * 10-10||Ammonium ion||NH3|

Is NaOH an acid or base?
NaOH is a base because when dissolved in water it dissociates into Na+ and OH- ions. It is the OH- (hydroxyl ion) which makes NaOH a base. In classical term a base is defined as a compound which reacts with an acid to form salt and water as depicted by the following equation.
How do I calculate PKA?
Calculating pKa –
What is the formula for the weakest conjugate base?
The conjugate base of a srtong acid is weak conjugate base. As example ; HCl (g) + H2O = H3O+ (aq) + Cl- (aq) HEre HCl is strong acid and Cl- is wek conjugate base .
Is hco3 acid or base?
HCO3- (known as bicarbonate) is the conjugate base of H2CO3, a weak acid, and the conjugate acid of the carbonate ion. HCO3- acts as a base when mixed with a compound that is more acidic than itself (larger Ka) and as an acid when mixed with a compound that is more basic than itself (smaller Ka).
