Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2In 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 acidbase 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.
