    I am using the Formula Ka*Kb=Kw. Rearranged then into Kb=Kw/Ka. Kw is a constant; 1.0*10^-14. Originally attempted using formula Kw=[H30}{OH^-}. Answer was 9.09*10^-10. Actual answer is 7.7*10^-10.

    I don't think so, but it's mentioned in this part of the textbook.

    yes thats the PoH and 1st one is pH(Hydrogen Concentration)

    So far, I attempted to use Kw=[H3O][OH], kakb=kw and kb=[HB][OH]/[B]

    Wait, is this question related any way to pH Also, that was a rather rude way to brush me off.

    Ok. Thank you all. I was not suppose to do questions related with pH yet. Thank you for clearing that up.
