Equilibrium reaction: (CH3)2NH(aq) + H2O(l) ⇌ (CH3)2NH2+(aq) + OH-(aq)
Kb is the base dissociation constant and it is an equilibrium expression.
When writing an equilibrium expression:
The compound dimethylamine, (CH3)2NH, is a weak base when dissolved in water. Write the Kb expression for the weak base equilibrium that occurs in an aqueous solution of dimethylamine:
