### 6A.1

How do you write formulas for conjugate acids?

6A.1 Write the formulas of the conjugate acids of (a) CH3NH2, methylamine; (b) NH2NH2, hydrazine; (c) HCO3-; and the conjugate bases of (d) HCO3-; (e) C6H5OH, phenol; (f) CH3COOH

You add a hydrogen to the formula and add a +1 to the overall charge of the acid

When doing acids you just add a proton and increase the charge respectively.

For a conjugate base, you remove a hydrogen and add a 1- charge.

I get that for a conjugate acid you add an H and add + to overall charge. But, for part a), would you add the H to the H of CH3 or the H of NH2?

You would add an H to the Nitrogen atom, since the carbon atom has a complete octet already.

Conjugate acid of a base is going to be the given base with an H+
