    Well H2SO4 + OH- --> HSO4- + H2O

    Did you just take the H from OH and move it to the SO4?

    Yes I took the one H because H2SO4 is the acid so it is the proton donor

    ohh yeah i remember that now. so what exactly is a bronsted lowry acid and base?

    A Bronsted-Lowry acid is defined as anything that releases H+ ions; a Bronsted-Lowry base is defined as anything that accepts H+ ions.

    @taramgrant0543664 isn't that the Arrhenius theory?

    ok, so in this case the acid base pair is H2SO4 and H2O

    @Rushwr honestly I mix them up all the time An Arrhenius base is a substance that when added to water increases the concentration of OH1- ions present. HCl is an example of an Arrhenius acid and NaOH is an example of an Arrhenius base. The H1+ ion produced by an Arrhenius acid is always associated with a water molecule to form the hydronium ion, H3O1+(aq). Thus is what I got when I searched

    I thought lowry bronsted theory explains how an acids are able to release protons to any medium and a base should be a species that can acquire protons from the medium right?

    and also OH and HSO4

    @taramgrant0543664 u were right ! Cuz arhenius theory talks about OH- ! But lowry bronsted don't talk about that !

    @wampominater H2SO4 is the acid and HSO4- is the conjugate base H2O is considered an acid cause it donates to OH- which is the conjugate base So OH- is the base and H2O is the conjugate acid I think

    @Rushwr good to know but I always am mixing them up so that's good to know that I had it this time lol!

    As to what I know the lowry bronsted base acquires a proton to become a CONJUGATED ACID while a lowry bronsted acid becomes a a conjugated base after releasing the proton @wampominater
