A conjugate acid is a base with a hydrogen ion added to it. A conjugate base is formed by the removal of a proton from an acid.

Why does weak acid have a strong conjugate base and in relation a strong acid has a weak conjugate base?

conjugate acids and bases are just the forms of the acids/ bases that accepted or donated protons to the other.

an example would be:

HNO3 + HPO4^2- -> NO3^- + H2PO4^-
acid + base conjugate base + conjugate acid

HNO3 -H^+ =NO3^-
HPO4^2 +H^+ = H2P04^-
