Solution: Identify the Bronsted-Lowry acid and base in the following reactions.HF + H2O → H3O+ + F-H2O + H2CO3 → H3O+ + HCO3-

Problem

Identify the Bronsted-Lowry acid and base in the following reactions.

HF + H2O → H3O+ + F-

H2O + H2CO3 → H3O+ + HCO3-

Solution

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-

HF

▪ donated H+ to H2O and became F
▪ proton donor → Bronsted-Lowry acid
