Unformatted text preview: smaller K a the stronger base has the smaller pK b and the bigger K b the weaker base has the bigger pK b and the smaller K b the stronger acid has the weaker conjugate base the weaker acid has the stronger conjugate base Recall (at 25C): pK a + pK b =14 K a K b = ?? ? So pK a and pK b are inverse for an acid/base conjugate pair Also K a and K b are inverse for an acid/base conjugate pair In any Acid/Base Equilibrium (such as the one on p. 13) there will always be a weaker side and a stronger side. The equilibrium always favors the weaker side....
