Base?

Postby Saleha_Mian_3E » Mon Dec 03, 2018 10:13 pm

What is a strong base compared to a weak base? What are the properties of both as well?

Strong bases fully ionize or dissociate while weak bases do not and thus have an equilibrium constant kb.

Strong Bases fully dissociate while weak bases will only partially dissociate. This is also true for strong acids vs weak acids. The strength of an acid or base , especially weak acids and bases, can be given by the equilibrium Ka for acids and Kb for bases.
