Textbook Problem

In each of the following acid-base reactions, identify the Brønsted acid and base on the left and their conjugate partners on the right.

  1. (a) HCO2H(aq) + H2O() ⇄ HCO2(aq) + H3O+(aq)
  2. (b) NH3(aq) + H2S(aq) ⇄ NH4+(aq) + HS(aq)
  3. (c) HSO4(aq) + OH(aq) ⇄ SO42−(aq) + H2O+()

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Bronsted acid and base on the left and their conjugate partners on the right has to be identified.

HCO2H (aq) + H2O (l) HCO2- (aq) + H3O+(aq)

Concept Introduction:

Bronsted –Lowry definitions:

A Bronsted –Lowry acid is a proton donor, it donates a hydrogen ion, H+

A Bronsted-Lowry base is a proton acceptor, it accepts a hydrogen ion H+.

Bronsted –Lowry conjugate acid-Base pairs:

When an acid is dissolved in water, the acid (HA) donates a proton to water to form a new acid (conjugate acid) and a new base (conjugate base).

Explanation

HCO2H (aq) + H2O (l) HCO2- (aq) + H3O+(aq)

In the above reaction,

HCO2H is donated a proton to H2O. Therefore, HCO2H is a Bronsted acid.

H2O is accepted a proton from HCO2H. Therefore, H2O is a Bronsted base.

The conjugate base of HCO2H is HCO2 because HCO2 has one proton less than HCO2H

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Bronsted acid and base on the left and their conjugate partners on the right has to be identified.

 NH3(aq) + H2S (aq) NH4+ (aq) + HS-(aq)

Concept Introduction:

Bronsted –Lowry definitions:

A Bronsted –Lowry acid is a proton donor, it donates a hydrogen ion, H+

A Bronsted-Lowry base is a proton acceptor, it accepts a hydrogen ion H+.

(c)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Bronsted acid and base on the left and their conjugate partners on the right has to be identified.

HSO4-(aq) + OH- (aq) SO42-(aq) + H2O (l)

Concept Introduction:

Bronsted –Lowry definitions:

A Bronsted –Lowry acid is a proton donor, it donates a hydrogen ion, H+

A Bronsted-Lowry base is a proton acceptor, it accepts a hydrogen ion H+.
