(Acid) (Base)
BLA BLB

2

Conjugated Acid

Compounds that is formed when a BLB picks up a proton "H+"

3

Conjugated Base

Compound that is formed when a BLA loses a "H+"

4

Arrhenius Theory for acids and bases

Acid- substance that produces H3O+ in soln

Bases: substances that produces OH- in soln

5

Relative strengths of Acids

Strong acids: produce weak CB
Weak acids: have strong CB

6

Relative strengths of Bases

Strong bases: produce weak CA
weak bases: have strong CA

7
