Homework Help: Chemistry-confused

Posted by janice on Friday, April 10, 2009 at 9:16pm.

All alkalis produce hydroxide ions when dissolved in water. How do we write the chemical equation for aqueous ammonia?
I see some textbooks write it as ammonia gas dissolving in water to form ammonium ions and hydroxide ions.

NH3(g)+ H2O(l) ==> NH4+(aq) + OH-(aq)
