  1. If it's a solid, make up a solution of known concn and measure the pH. Then calculate the Kb of the base. Or, measure the pH of a known concn of its conjugate acid.

    name a compound that acts as a weak base? methanol? define the term weak bronsted-lowry base im not sure how to put this in words, but a weak base is found when you got a strong acid, when your ka is high, kb will be low.

    Is lithium hydroxide a strong or weak base? It is 100% ionized so, by definition, it is a strong base. Try looking up Kb for LiOH in a set of tables. It won't be there, further proof that it is not a weak base. thank you!

    Can you tell if I'm correct. Which combination in titration has ph=pka and buffer region strong acid-strong base- no to both strong acid-weak base- yes to both weak acid-strong base- yes to both weak acid-weak base- I'm not sure
