Diethylamine (C2H5)2NH, is a weak base that ionizes in water,a 0.600 M solution of (C2H5)2NH is 4.65% ionized at 25 degrees Celsius.

-Calculate the pH of the solution.
-Calculate the Kb for diethylamine.

  • Chemistry -

    Let's call diethylamine simply BNH.
    .......BNH + HOH ==> BNH2^+ + OH^-
    I.....0.600...........0........0
    C........-x............x........x
    E......0.600-x........x.........x

    %ionization = 4.65%; therefore,
    x = (BNH^+) = (OH^-) = 0.600 x 0.0465

    pOH = -log(OH^-) and yo have OH^-
    Then pH + pOH = pKw = 14. You have pOH and 14, solve for pH.

    Then substitute the values in the E line into Kb expression and solve for Kb.
