# Problem: Give the conjugate acid of the following Bronsted-Lowry base: H2PO4-.

###### FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the conjugate acids and bases of each of the given compound.

According to Brønsted and Lowry, an acid was classified as a proton (H+) donor while a base was a proton (H+) acceptor

When an acid loses an H+ the resulting species is called its conjugate base.

***Note: The compound gains 1 negative charge for each proton removed
