how do i predict a conjugate a base?
Ex: HBr. The conjugate base is Br-
It's easy. Really nothing to it.
Acids have another H. Bases have fewer H.The problem tells you what is printed is an acid. Take away a H to get the base.
SO, NH4^+ is the acid; NH3 is the base.
H2O is the acid; OH^- is the base.
ha :) thanks so much, that helps lots, i don't know why i was over thinking it! you're awesome!
