Expert Answer

Step 1

Given acids:

(a) H2CO3

(b) HPO42-

(c) NH4+

Step 2

According to Bronsted acid-base theory, the species that has capacity to donate proton is called an acid, whereas the species that accepts the proton is called a base.

 

The pair of acid and base differing from each other by just one proton is called conjugate acid-base pair. The species formed after an acid looses electrons to a base is called conjugate base of that acid.

 

The formation of conjugate base of H2CO3 is as follows:

Step 3

The deprotonation of H2CO3 results in the formation of HCO3-, which is a conjugate base of H2CO3.

 

The formation o...
