Problem

What is the conjugate base of HSO 3 and HPO22−?

Express your answer as a chemical formula.

 

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the conjugate base of HSO3 and HPO22–.


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