Strong acids/bases and Weak conjugate acids/bases

Postby sallina_yehdego 2E » Wed Dec 05, 2018 5:02 pm

Just to be clear, strong acids usually have weak conjugate bases and strong bases usually have weak conjugate acids right?

Yes, strong bases usually have weak conjugate acids and strong acids usually have weak conjugate bases. For example, HCl (strong acid) has the conjugate base of Cl- (weak base) and OH- (strong base) has the conjugate base of H2O (weak acid).
