Solution: Label each of the following as being a strong base, a weak base, or a species with negligible basicity. In each case write the formula of its conjugate acid, and indicate whether the conjugate acid is a strong acid, a weak acid, or a species with negligible acidity.Write the formula of O2- conjugate acid

Problem

Label each of the following as being a strong base, a weak base, or a species with negligible basicity. In each case write the formula of its conjugate acid, and indicate whether the conjugate acid is a strong acid, a weak acid, or a species with negligible acidity.

Write the formula of O2- conjugate acid

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the conjugate acid of oxide ion O2-.


Recall that the conjugate acid of a base is simply the compound formed when a base gains a hydronium ion (H+). It's considered as an acid because it can lose H+ to reform the base.
