bootcamp in its explanation stated NH3 is a strong base... Critical i checked it isn"t.. Therefore which is it this to be the message " To highlight this, think the ammonium, NH4+. Ammonium is a weak acid, but the conjugate basic of ammonium is ammonia, NH3, which is a solid base. " is it..... Or what man


You are watching: Is nh3 a strong or weak acid

You"re mix up NH3 v NH2-. The pKa that NH3 is 38 therefore NH2- is a solid base. The pKa of NH4+ is ~10 so NH3 is a lot weaker base than NH2-. As to OP"s question, it"s every relative. You"re appropriate that NH3 is usually not taken into consideration such a strong base (because it"s neutral); it"s significantly weaker than OH-, because that example. However, in the context of the question, that may have actually been more powerful than another base he to be talking about so he called it a "strong base".

You"re best that NH3 is typically not taken into consideration such a solid base (because it"s neutral); it"s substantially weaker than OH-, for example. However, in the paper definition of that question, it may have actually been more powerful than one more base he was talking about so he called it a "strong base".
true, I"m walk base turn off Ochem. But it still chem so the applies. NH3 would deprotonate compounds with pKa below its pKa. the is quite relative. NH3 is a solid base if there was HCl in the solution

bootcamp in that is explanation claimed NH3 is a solid base... Critical i checked it isn"t.. Therefore which is that this was the message " To illustrate this, think the ammonium, NH4+. Ammonium is a weak acid, yet the conjugate base of ammonium is ammonia, NH3, which is a solid base. " is it..... Or what male
NH3 is a weak base. NH2-, recognized as the amide ion is a very an effective base. I have been working through this base because that over 35 years and it normally finishes the job especially in the E2 process or building larger alkynes during organic synthesis. hope this help Dr. Romano
