Solution: Ammonia, NH3, acts as an Arrhenius base, a Brønsted-Lowry base, and a Lewis base, in aqueous solution.Write out the reaction NH3(aq) undergoes with water.

Problem

Ammonia, NH3, acts as an Arrhenius base, a Brønsted-Lowry base, and a Lewis base, in aqueous solution.

Write out the reaction NH3(aq) undergoes with water.

Solution

We're being asked to write the reaction of NH3 in water acting as a base

In this case, we will just use the definition of Arrhenius Base for the reaction of NH3 in water

For Arrhenius bases

Arrhenius bases increases the concentration of OH ion when dissolved in water
