What is the conjugate acid of HSO_4^-1?

Jun 13, 2016

The conjugate acid of bisulfate ion, $H S {O}_{4}^{-}$, is ${H}_{2} S {O}_{4}$.

Explanation:

The conjugate acid of any base is the base PLUS a ${H}^{+}$. As in any chemical reaction, charge AND mass are conserved.

And thus the conjugate acid of bisulfate is sulfuric acid.
