. Write the conjugate acid for each of the following.

a. NH3

b. NH2-

c. H2O

d. OH-

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The conjugate acid of the species should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

The conjugate acid − base pair concept arises from the Bronsted −Lowry definition for acid and base.

According to Bronsted-Lowry model, acid is defined as a proton donor and base as a proton acceptor. On donating a proton, an acid forms conjugate base and on accepting a proton base forms a conjugate acid. Thus, in a conjugate acid-base pair, substances are in relation by accepting and donating a proton.

Explanation

Conjugate acid of a species could be obtained by writing the reaction of species acquiring a proton ( H+ ) from the medium. The resulting components after a base acquire a proton ( H+ ) are its conjugate acid. This could be summarized to following equation;

B+H+BH

Where B is the base and BH is the conjugate acid.

NH3 is a base
