Problem: Which pair is not a conjugate acid-base pair?(a) (CH3)3N; (CH3)3NH+ (b) H2SO4; H2SO3(c) HNO2; NO2–

FREE Expert Solution

conjugate acid  base gains a hydronium ion (H+)

conjugate base → acid loses a hydronium ion (H+)

a) (CH3)3N; (CH3)3NH+ 

(CH3)3N → neutral amine → base → will gain H+

(CH3)3+ H+ ⇌ (CH3)3NH+ 

conjugate acid-base pair

(b) H2SO4; H2SO3
