    @abb0t if we have the reaction NH3 + H20 ---- NH4+ + OH- What would be the conjugate acid base pair in this case and why? Thanks

    In the following case consider Water to be Acid1 Since water donates a proton it acts as an acid and turns into OH+ which is a base1 Conjugate acid-base pairs are compounds that differ by the presence of one proton or H+. All acids have a conjugate base. As soon as the acid donates the proton it forms a conjugate base. Similarily all base have conjugate acid which is formed after they have accepted the proton.
