KA VS KB

Postby AsthaPatel4B » Mon Nov 21, 2016 6:53 pm

I know KA is used for weak acids and bases. However, what is the KB used for/ to find?

I am not completely positive, but I believe that we use Ka for acids and Kb for bases. So far we have only used Ka for weak acids and Kb for the bases.

Yes, Ka is used to represent the equilibrium constant for acids, and Kb represents the equ. constant for bases. The equations you use to find equ. constant is exactly the same for both Ka and Kb, just the actual quantity of the constants differ.
