The ice bath one would take longer because it takes more energy for the solution in the flask to form products thus, the activation energy is higher making the reactants need energy so it is endothermic.

The acid on the left has a conjugate base on the right. H20 is acting as base, and H3O+ conjugate acid. It's pretty much the opposite.

You would add H2O to the acid and determine the products from a double reaction. The acid who gives the H+ up is the acid and the one who accepts it is the base. You look over at the products and those are called the conjugates. Do for example... 1) HSO4- + H2O --> H3O+ + ...

Well I haven't done trig in a long time but u believe... You divide the 2 to each side to get Cos(3x-72)=1/2 Then do the inverse to both sides to get rid of the cos and end with 3x-72=60 degrees So x= 44 degrees Cosine is positive in quad1&4 So 44degrees and 316degrees.
