The Relative Strengths of Conjugate Acid-base Pairs



  • Strong acids have a weak conjugate base.


Example: HCl is a strong acid. If HCl is a strong acid, it must be a good proton donor. HCl can only be a good proton donor, however, if the Cl- ion is a poor proton acceptor. Thus, the Cl- ion must be a weak base.


























HCl(g) + H2O(l) <-----> H3O+(aq) + Cl-(aq)  
Strong
acid
          Weak
base
 



  • Strong bases have a weak conjugate acid.


Example: Let's consider the relationship between the strength of the ammonium (NH4+) and its conjugate base, ammonia (NH3). The NH4+ ion is a weak acid because ammonia is a reasonably good base.
























NH4+(aq) + H2O(l) <-----> H3O+(aq) + NH3(aq)
Weak
acid
         

Good
base






 


 


Comparing Relative Strengths of Pairs of Acids and Bases


The value of Ka for an acid can be used to decide whether it is a strong acid or a weak acid, in an absolute sense. It can also be used l to compare the relative strengths of a pair of acids.


Example: Consider HCl and the H3O+ ion.
















HCl   Ka = 1 x 106
H3O+   Ka = 55


These Ka values suggest that both are strong acids, but HCl is a stronger acid than the H3O+ ion.


A high proportion of the HCl molecules in an aqueous solution reacts with water to form H3O+ and Cl- ions. The Brnsted theory suggests that every acid-base reaction converts an acid into its conjugate base and a base into its conjugate acid.


chemical equation


There are two acids and two bases in this reaction. The stronger acid, however, is on the left side of the equation.




























HCl(g) + H2O(l) <-----> H3O+(aq) + Cl-(aq)  
stronger
acid
      weaker
acid
   


The general rules suggest that the stronger of a pair of acids must form the weaker of a pair of conjugate bases. The fact that HCl is a stronger acid than the H3O+ ion implies that the Cl- ion is a weaker base than water.




















Acid strength:   HCl > H3O+
Base strength:   Cl- < H2O


Thus, the equation for the reaction between HCl and water can be written as follows.






























HCl(g) + H2O(l) <-----> H3O+(aq) + Cl-(aq)  
stronger
acid
  stronger
base
  weaker
acid
  weaker
base
 


It isn't surprising that 99.996% of the HCl molecules in a 6 M solution react with water to give H3O+ ions and Cl- ions. The stronger of a pair of acids should react with the stronger of a pair of bases to form a weaker acid and a weaker base.


Let's look at the relative strengths of acetic acid and the H3O+ ion.
















CH3CO2H   Ka = 1.8 x 10-5
H3O+   Ka = 55


The values of Ka for these acids suggest that acetic acid is a much weaker acid than the H3O+ ion, which explains why acetic acid is a weak acid in water. Once again, the reaction between the acid and water must convert the acid into its conjugate base and the base into its conjugate acid.


chemical equation


But this time, the stronger acid and the stronger base are on the right side of the equation.




























CH3CO2H(aq) + H2O(l) <-----> H3O+(aq) + CH3CO2-(aq)
weaker
acid
  weaker
base
  stronger
acid
  stronger
base


As a result, only a few of the CH3CO2H molecules actually donate an H+ ion to a water molecule to form the H3O+ and CH3CO2- ions.
