🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Harwood's class at PURDUE.

Solution: What is the conjugate acid of CO 32– in the reactionCO32– + HSO4- ⇌ HCO3– + SO42–A) HCO3–             B) HSO4–                C) OH–                D) H3O+              E) SO42–

Problem

What is the conjugate acid of CO 32– in the reaction
CO32– + HSO4⇌ HCO3 + SO42–

A) HCO3             

B) HSO4                

C) OH                

D) H3O+              

E) SO42–

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the conjugate acid of CO32– in the reaction:

CO32– + HSO4 HCO3 + SO42–


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.
