how do you determine what species are present in NH3 soltuion? I don't understand what exactly the species are.

  • chemistry -

    NH3 reacts with water as follows:
    NH3 + HOH <--> NH4+ + OH^-
    Now what is in the solution?
    NH4^+, OH^-, and NH3(aq).
    Those are the three species.

    thanks. That makes sense now that i see it, i just forgot what species meant. Thanks for your help DrBob!
