Bronsted-Lowry Acids and BasesĀ 

Concept #1: According to the Bronsted-Lowry definition, acids are considered H+ donor and bases are considered H+ acceptor. 

Example #1: Write the formula of the conjugate base for each of the following compounds:

HSO3

Example #2: Write the formula of the conjugate acid for each of the following compounds:

HPO32-

 

Example #3: Identify the acid, base, conjugate acid and conjugate base in the following reactions:

HF (aq)      +      H2O (aq)   ⇌    F (aq)      +      H3O+ (aq)
