Enter the formula for the conjugate base of each acid.

Express your answer as an ion.

Expert Answer

Step 1

Conjugate base is a species which is formed by the removal of an acidic proton from an acid.

Acid → Conjugate base + H+

Step 2

The dissociation of the given acid in aqueous solution occurs as,

HC2H3O2 + H2O → C2H3O2- + H3O+

In the dissociation of given acid, C2H3O2- is formed after donation of an acidic proton. Therefore, the spe...
