Most acids will have an H attached, or a COOH attached if it is a biological acid in the carboxyl group. Likewise, bases will generally have either an O or OH attached. If you look at a reaction, you can often figure out if a compound is an acid or base based on rather it gives a proton (acid) or accepts a proton (base).

So do acidic salts contain a bronsted acid or a conjugate acid?
