Bronsted-Lowry acid → proton (H+) donor
Conjugate base → one less hydrogen form of the Bronsted-Lowry acid
Bronsted-Lowry base → proton (H+) acceptor
Conjugate acid → one hydrogen greater than Bronsted-Lowry base
Reaction given: HF + H2O → H3O+ + F-
▪ donated H+ to H2O and became F‑
▪ proton donor → Bronsted-Lowry acid
Identify the Bronsted-Lowry acid and base in the following reactions.
HF + H2O → H3O+ + F-
H2O + H2CO3 → H3O+ + HCO3-
