# What is a conjugate acid of OH^-?

Nov 22, 2017

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

#### Explanation:

And thus....

${H}^{+} + H {O}^{-} \rightarrow {H}_{2} O \left(l\right)$

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, $N {H}_{3}$?
