Difference Between Ka and Kb

What is the difference between Ka and Kb? How would you find the Kb of an equation where an acid is ionized?

Ka is the equilibrium constant for acids, and Ka is the equilibrium constant for bases. For an acid that is ionized, you would fine Ka, not Kb.

How would you find Ka?
