# Which of the following represent conjugate acid–base pairs? For those pairs that are not conjugates, write the correct conjugate acid or base for each species in the pair.a. H2O, OH−b. H2SO4, SO42−c. H3PO4, H2PO4−d. HC2H3O2, C2H3O2−

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The conjugate acid-base pair is to be identified from the given options. The correct conjugate acid or base is to be stated for wrong conjugate acid-base pair.

Concept introduction: A pair of substance that is related to each other by donating and accepting of a single proton is known as conjugate acid-base pair.

To Identify: If H2O,OH represents conjugate acid-base pair; the correct conjugate acid-base pair if it is incorrect.

Explanation

Explanation

The chemical species H2O,OH are related to each other. The species H2O donates a single proton to form OH , which is a conjuga
