Carbonic acid reacts with water to yield bicarbonate ions and hydronium ions: h2co3+h2o⇌hco3−+h3o+ identify the conjugate acid-base pairs. drag each item to the appropriate bin. view available hint(s) resethelp


Balanced chemical reaction: H₂CO₃(aq) + H₂O(l) → HCO₃⁻(aq) + H₃O⁺(aq). According to  Bronsted-Lowry theory acid are donor of protons and bases are acceptors of protons (the hydrogen cation or H⁺). Carbonic acid (H₂CO₃) is Bronsted acid and it can give proton and become conjugate base hydrogencarbonate (HCO₃⁻), water is base and hydronium ion is conjugate acid (H ₃O⁺).
