HW 6D #11

For this problem, would the answer be just NH4Br---> NH4+ Br-? or would it include H2O as a base? so it looks like NH4Br + H2O---> NH4+H3O+ Br- ? How would I approach the second part of the problem?

The first equation you wrote is correct. For the second part of the problem, look at both of the ions. Br- is the conjugate base of a strong acid so it is a weak base. NH4+ is the conjugate acid of a weak base so it is a strong acid. Thus the solution will be acidic.
