Conjugate acid

Submitted by jpthehp on Tue, 04/13/2010 - 22:11

I have F(negative charge) and CO3(-2 charge)
and need to write the formula of their conjugate acids
how would I do that?  I think i react each one with water and
the product would be the answer but am not sure if this is right


HF          +            H2O          F-      +        H3O+
acid                      base                conj base        conj acid

but
  F-      +        H3O+      HF          +            H2O
base              acid              conj acid                conj base
