Well what do you get when you add a proton to the beast?


And thus....

#H^(+) +HO^(-) rarr H_2O(l)#

And thus the conjugate acid of hydroxide ion is simply water.... And for the conjugate base we remove a proton, and for the conjugate acid we ADD a proton. And mass and charge are as always CONSERVED.

And what is the conjugate acid of water?

What is the conjugate base of hydroxide? And the conjugate base of ammonia, #NH_3#?
