🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Broyer & Bryant's class at USC.

Solution: What is the conjugate base of HS-?a. H2S-b. S-c. S2-d. H2S

Problem

What is the conjugate base of HS-?

a. H2S-
b. S-
c. S2-
d. H2S

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the conjugate base of HS.


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.
