pKa and pKb

Postby sonalivij » Wed Jan 16, 2019 10:03 pm

If the pKa is given for an acid, and we are told to find the pKb, are we technically finding the pKb of the acids conjugate base if we use 14-pKa=pKb?

Technically yes, but that would be the correct way to solve for the pKb of an acid given the pKa
