Is there ever a time when the Henderson-Hasselbalch could be used for a weak base and it's conjugate acid? Or is just weak acids and it's conjugate base?
Also, are buffers only used for weak acids and it's conjugate base?

The alternate form would be using the pOH and the pKb instead of the pH and pKa.
