Given the concentration of a strong base solution (assume a Group IA metal with hydroxide), what is the correct procedure to determine the pH of the solution?

A) Set concentration of the base equal to [OH -], convert to [H3O+] and solve for pH

B) Find Kb and convert to Ka and use a table to find the equilibrium concentration of [H 3O+] and solve for pH

C) Set concentration of the base equal to [H 3O+] and solve for pH

D) Use a table to find the equilibrium concentration of the conjugate acid which is equal to [H  3O+] and solve for pH

E) Find Kb , and set-up a table to find the equilibrium concentration of [OH -], convert to [H3O+] and solve for pH
