2 a weak acid is partially ionized AH + H 2 O A - + H 3 O + K a = [A - ][H 3 O + ]/[AH] acid ionization constant K a measures acid strength: K a [H 3 O + ] acidity AH, A - = conjugate acid-base pair Weak acids and bases

3 a weak base is partially ionized : B + H 2 O BH + + OH - K b = [BH + ][OH - ]/[B] base ionization constant K b measures base strength: K b [OH - ] basicity BH + , B = conjugate acid-base pair
