  18. What are conjugate acids and bases?
    A conjugate acid donates a proton to form the conjugate base

    A conjugate base accepts a proton to form the conjugate acid.
  19. Explain a conjugate pair

  20. What is the common ion effect?
    The common ion effect is the effect on pH when the salt of a conjugate base is added to a solution of it's parent or conjugate acid.

  22. What is a buffer solution?
    A buffer solution is a combination of an acid and the salt of its conjugate base, that maintains the pH of a solution in the presence of small amounts of added acid or base

    A buffer solution is one which resists changes in pH when small quantities of an acid or an alkali are added to it.
  23. What are acidic buffers?
    Acidic buffers have a pH of less than 7 and are made from a weak acid and one of its salts.
  24. What are basic buffers?
    Basic buffers have a pH greater than 7 and they're made by mixing a weak base with one of its salts
  25. How do buffer solutions work?
    Read the chemistry guide pg 46-7
