你好,moo84
Both “吧" and "呢" are modal particle words. "吧" is used to indicate a suggestion, for example, “Wǒ men qù kàn diànyǐng ba!” Let's watch a movie.  "吧" is used to indicate a supposition, for example,"Nǐ shì Wáng xiānsheng ba!" You must be Mr.Wang! 
"呢" is used to indicate a question and soften the tone of the sentence, for example, "Nǐ wèishénme bú qù ne?" Why don't you come? 
We will have a lesson about how to use "呢" in details. 
Good question! 加油!
