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.

Which equation represents an interaction of a weak base with water? 

NaOH(aq) → Na+(aq) + OH- (aq) 

CH3CH2OH(l) → CH3CH2OH(aq) 

N2H4(aq) + H2O(l) → N2H5+ (aq) + OH- (aq) 

HPO42-(aq) + H2O(l) → PO43-(aq) + H3O+(aq)

H2O(l) → H+(aq) + OH- (aq)
