Thallium hydroxide is a strong base used in the synthesis of some organic compounds. Calculate the pH of a solution containing 2.55 g TIOH per liter.

Sorry! I'm having a really hard time with this acid/base stuff!

TlOH is a strong base as the problem says. Do it just as you would a NaOH problem. Determine mols from the 2.55 g mass. That will be the mols/L and that is the (OH^-). Then pOH = -log(OH^-) and pH + pOH = 14 to solve for pH. Post your work if you get stuck.
