strength of acids/bases

Postby Hamilton Oh Dis 3L » Thu Dec 03, 2015 2:00 am

Does a low pKa value or a low pKb value correspond to higher strength of the acid or base?

Yeah. A high Ka or high Kb values indicates that more product (conjugate base or acid) is formed, which means closer to complete dissociation. Conversely, a low pKa and low pKb indicate the same thing.
