Re: Sapling #5

Hello, This is the reaction: B(aq)+H2O(l)↽−−⇀BH+(aq)+OH−(aq)Kb=[BH+][OH−][B] In the chemical reaction, B represents the amine. [ OH− ] = [ BH+ ] because same mole ratio 1:1. Use the pH to determine the pOH and then the [ OH− ]. pOH=14.00−pH Then do the inverse of log 10^(your pOH), which is x. Then...
