Solution: Write equations showing how each of the following weak bases ionizes water to form OH-.a) HCO3-b) CH3NH2Identify all of the phases in the answer.

Problem

Write equations showing how each of the following weak bases ionizes water to form OH-.

a) HCO3-

b) CH3NH2

Identify all of the phases in the answer.

Solution

The questions ask us to show the equation of how this base reacts with water. Water (H2O) will ionize into H+ and OH-. That H+ will go to the weak base to create its conjugate acid.
