- LiamLv 58 years agoFavorite Answer
A Brønsted-Lowry Base is a substance or solution that is a proton acceptor.
A Brønsted-Lowry Acid is a substance or solution that is a proton donor.
A Lewis Acid is a substance that can accept a lone pair to complete its electron configuration.
H+ is an example of a Lewis Acid.
I'm not sure on a Conjugate Base, but a quick Google search return this definition:
A conjugate base is the base member, X-, of a pair of compounds that transform into each other by gaining or losing a proton. The conjugate base gains or absorbs a proton in a chemical reaction.
