# What is the conjugate base of acetic acid hc2h3o2?

Explanation: The conjugate base of acetic acid is the acetate anion (the parent acid less a proton, H+ ), hence H3C−C(=O)O− . The conjugate acid of OH2 is water plus a proton, i.e. an hydronium ion, H3O+ .

Similarly one may ask, for what base is hc2h3o2 the conjugate acid?

In this equation we see that HC2H3O2 has donated a proton to H2O so HC2H3O2 is acting as an acid and as H2O is accepting a proton H2O is a base. C2H3O2– on the other can accept a proton so C2H3O2– is a base but its a conjugate base to acid HC2H3O2 since it is generatd by losing a proton from HC2H3O2 .

Additionally, what is the dissociation equation for hc2h3o2? The equation is for the acid dissociation is HC2H3O2 + H2O <==> H3O+ + C2H3O2-.

Regarding this, what is the name of hc2h3o2?

The chemical name for HC2H3O2 is acetic acid. Most people recognize acetic acid, when it is diluted with water, as vinegar. Acetic acid is also known as ethanoic acid. Due to the fact that HC2H3O2 is an acid, it is also sometimes used as a solvent.

Which equation best represents the behavior of acetic acid hc2h3o2 in water?

Solution: Acetic acid, HC2H3O2, is a weak acid. The following is the equilibrium equation for its reaction with water: HC2H3O2 (aq) + H2O (l) ⇌ H 3O+ (aq) + C2H3O2-(aq) Ka = 1.8 x 10-5 What is the pOH of.
