Fundamental J.13 Part C

Postby VSU_3F » Sat Dec 12, 2020 3:52 pm

Hello!

Just curious, what would the conjugate acid and bases be in this chemical reaction? Since this reaction creates a neutral solution, would we still have conjugate acid and base pairs? Thank you so much!

That’s a great question. I don’t know if there would be any conjugate pairs because this reaction is between a strong acid and a strong base.

By definition, a conjugate acid/base is what is formed when an acid/base donates or accepts a proton. So technically you should still have conjugate pairs even if its neutralized completely.

For bronsted acid and bases and lewis acids and bases, it's pretty clear on what is a conjugate acid/base. However, I'm not entirely sure if neutralized reactions have a conjugate acid and base. I don't think they do because the products are water and a salt.

Like the others have said, I don't believe there is a specific conjugate acid or base for this reaction since neutralizations between a strong acid and strong base create a salt plus water.
