QUESTION

# How would you write the formula of the conjugate base of the Bronstead-Lowry acids H2SO3 and HI?

HSO_3^(-) and I^-

The Bronsted-Lowry definition for acids is that they are proton (H^+) donors. A conjugate base is the species that is formed when the proton is donated.

In the case of sulfurous acid the result is a bisulfite ion: H_2SO_3 ->HSO_3^(-) + H^+

For hydrogen iodide, the conjugate base is just a iodide ion: HI -> I^(-) + H^(+)
