What are the conjugate acid and base of water?

Jun 24, 2016

Hydroxide and so-called hydronium ion.

Explanation:

To formulate the conjugate acid/conjugate base, we simply add or subtract a proton, ${H}^{+}$, and conserve charge. The conjugate acid of water is represented as ${H}_{3} {O}^{+}$. And the conjugate base of water is ""^(-)OH.

Can you tell the conjugate acid, and the conjugate base of ${H}_{2} S {O}_{4}$, sulfuric acid?
