Write the chemical equations of the two proton transfer equilibria that demonstrate the amphiprotic character of
(a) HCO3-
(b) HPO42-
Identify the conjugate acid-base pairs in each case

H2O is the best reactant to choose because it is also amphoteric, meaning that it can act as both an acid and a base so it works in both equations.
