    Bronstead Lowry base is anything that accepts a hydrogen A bronstead Lowry acid is one that produced or loses an H+

    NH4+ -----> NH3 We write our what's going on for each ion: we can clearly see that NH4+ is losing a hydrogen. [NH3][H+]/[NH4+] = Ka Now whenever an acid loses a proton it becomes its conjugate base. Above was the Ka acid dissociation constant. OH- -----> HOH OH- is gaining a proton to become water, Because it's taking a proton from NH4+ [HOH]/[OH-][H+] = Kb this is our Kb. Whenever a base gains a proton it becomes its conjugate acid. So based off of this what do you think the bronstead Lowry acid and base are based off of the description?
