Problem

Based on these molecular views, determine whether each pictured base is weak or strong.

Picture (b)

 The figure labeled B shows a beaker filled with a solution which contains 12 molecules of OH minus and 12 molecules of Na plus. .

Solution

In this problem, we are asked to determine whether each pictured base is weak or strong.


Recall that a base is a chemical species that donates electrons, accepts protons, or releases hydroxide (OH-) ions in aqueous solution.

Bases may be categorized according to their degree of dissociation in water and reactivity.
