Inverse Proportional

Postby Tinisha 1G » Thu Dec 06, 2018 10:27 am

So the strength of the conjugate acid/base is inversely proportional to the strength of the acid/base?

Yes, a weak acid has a strong conjugate base. And a strong base has a weak conjugate acid.

Yes, the relationship between the strength of an acid/base and the strength of its conjugate base/acid is inversely proportional. The stronger the base is, the stronger its conjugate acid & vice versa.
