Recall: A large Kb value indicates the high level of dissociation (i.e. more basic) of a strong base.
In decreasing basicity, we have:
The table below shows four bases and their base dissociation constants.
Arrange the bases in the table above from strongest to weakest.
ethylamine pyridine methylamine ammonia
