Question

# Write the conjugate acids for the following Bronsted bases $$\displaystyle { NH }_{ 2 }^{ - },\;{ NH }_{ 3 }$$ and $${ HCOO }^{ - }$$.

Solution

## To convert the Bronsted base into their conjugate base, the base has to gain a proton. $$\underset {\text {Bronsted Base}}{\displaystyle { NH }_{ 2 }^{ - }} + H^+ \rightarrow \underset {\text {Conjugate acid}}{{ NH }_{ 3 }}$$The conjugate acids for the Bronsted bases $$\displaystyle { NH }_{ 2 }^{ - },\;{ NH }_{ 3 }$$ and $${ HCOO }^{ - }$$ are $$\displaystyle { NH }_{ 3 },\ { NH }_{ 4 }^{ + }$$ and $$HCOOH$$ respectively.ChemistryNCERTStandard XI
