Video Transcript

So, let's say we need to go ahead and figure out which one of these is more basic now, we might be thinking okay well I know that the one that's more acidic, right? It's going to be less basic obviously, right? That's just how it works, but let's say we didn't have this part of the question to begin with, right? We were just asked this. Well, actually again because of the atom effect we could say that our nitrogen is more acidic, our nitrogen compound is more, more basic, right? our phosphorous compound is more acidic, the reason for that is that guys we've got that atom effect, right? this can pull its electrons less well and have a larger atom, right? So because we've got more distribution over the phosphorous we have less electron density overall to grab a hydrogen, right? But we've got higher electron density concentration on the nitrogen to grab the hydrogen, okay? If that's too much to remember just think atom effect, a smaller atom is more basic a larger atom is more acidic. Alright, so guys, let me know give any questions, if not, let's go on.
