# Formation of products is strongly favoured in the acid-base system

The formation of products is strongly favoured in the acid-base system:

HX + B- <--- HB + X-
---->

a) Identify the bases competing for protons.
b) Which base is stronger?
c) Which is the weaker acid, HX or HB?
d) Does the K for this system have a large or small value?
e) How is the equilibrium affected by the addition of the soluble salt at NaB?

Any help be appreciated. Thanks.

Is this a forward and reverse reaction? e.g:

$$HX + B^- \rightleftharpoons HB + X^-$$
