(a) Interpretation: A chemical equation showing the indicated behaviour of given species in water should be written. Concept Introduction: Concept Introduction: Acid is defined as a substance that gives hydrogen ion/s in the aqueous solution. Similarly, base is a substance that gives hydroxide ions in the aqueous solution. When a acid gives its hydrogen ion, conjugate base is formed and when a base gives its hydroxide ion, conjugate acid is formed. For example, if HA is an acid, the reaction for formation of conjugate base will be as follows: HA → H + +A − Here, A − is conjugate base. Similarly, if BOH is a base, the reaction for formation of conjugate acid will be as follows: BOH → B + +OH − Here, B + is conjugate acid. Thus, a conjugate base can accept hydrogen ion and conjugate base can accept hydroxide ion.

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

A chemical equation showing the indicated behaviour of given species in water should be written.

Concept Introduction: Concept Introduction: Acid is defined as a substance that gives hydrogen ion/s in the aqueous solution. Similarly, base is a substance that gives hydroxide ions in the aqueous solution. When a acid gives its hydrogen ion, conjugate base is formed and when a base gives its hydroxide ion, conjugate acid is formed.

For example, if HA is an acid, the reaction for formation of conjugate base will be as follows:

HAH++A

Here, A is conjugate base.

Similarly, if BOH is a base, the reaction for formation of conjugate acid will be as follows:

BOHB++OH

Here, B+ is conjugate acid.

Thus, a conjugate base can accept hydrogen ion and conjugate base can accept hydroxide ion.
