Can someone check if I'm right

If given this formula: H2SO4(aq) + H2O (l) → HSO4- (aq) + H3O+ (aq)
H2SO4(aq)= bronsted acid
H2O= bronstead base
HSO4- = conjugate base
H3O= conjugate acid

Re: Conjugate?

In the reaction Ba(OH)2 + H2O = Ba + 2OH + H2O, the conjugate base is H2O and the conjugate acid is OH. Whatever was the base before the reaction becomes the conjugate acid and whatever was the acid before the problem becomes the conjugate base. Thanks for the explanation, I kept confusing which wa...

Dispersion and Mass?

So I was doing some review and ranked the molecules in order of strongest interaction, but my answer was backward. From weakest to strongest the answer was:
H2S, H2Se, and H2Te. I figured that this was because dispersion forces increase with mass. Can someone verify if this is the correct reasoning?

Does this also mean the bigger the value of Kb the stronger the base?

Re: ordering

So if radii takes presedence over charge then when ordering cations (Li+, Ca2+, Cs+,Ba2+) from least to most polarizing power and anions (I-, Cl-, S2-, P3-) from least to most polarizable, would it be:

Least---------> Most
Cs+, Ba2+,Ca2+,Li+
