Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Samantha on Sunday, May 31, 2009 at 10:46pm.

The question says write a reaction for the ionization of the following compound in water. Identify the acid, the base, the conjugate acid, and the conjugate base in each of them.

1. H2SO4
2. KOH
4. NH3
5. HNO3

My guesses are:
H2SO4 + H2O -> H3O+ + HSO4-
KOH + H2O -> K+ + OH- + H2O
CH3COOH + H2O -> CH3COO- + H3O+
NH3 + H2O -> NH2- + H3O+
HNO3 + H2O -> NO3- + H3O+

Before I guess the acids and bases, are any of these equation right? Can someone explain the rules for writing these equations?
