    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Ammonia acts as a base in aqueous solution; Kb is equal to 1.8 x 10-5. What is the Ka for the ammonium ion NH4+ in aqueous solution?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I am totally lost for this question, can someone please start me off? all i know is that Kw = Ka * Kb

    Re: Kb

    You are given Kb, you should remember Kw value - just solve for Ka.
