Problem Details

Even though both NH3 and C6H5NH2 are weak base, NH3 is a much stronger acid than C6H5NH2. Which of the following is correct at equilibrium for a solution that is initially 0.10 M in NH3 and 0.10 M in C6H5NH2?

(a) [OH] = [NH4+]
(b) [NH4+] = [C6H5NH3+]
(c) [OH] = [C6H5NH3+]
(d) [NH3] = [C6H5NH2]
(e) both a and b are correct
