It is a weak base because it does not fully dissociate when dissolved.

A base. It forms ammonium hydroxide, NH4OH, which is a weak base.

Ammonium hydroxide is a weak base that is highly soluble in water.

Yes NH4OH is a weak electrolyte.

Ammonium hydroxide (NH4OH) is a base. The cation (NH4)+ is low acidic.

Weak acids : CH3COOH , HCOOH , H3CO3 ,C6H5OH ,HCN ...... Weak baces : NH4OH , Al(OH)3 , Be(OH)2 ...

this is buffer system consisted of a weak base and its conjugated base. NH4OH is the weak acid and the NH4Cl is the conjugated base. when an acid or a base is added in small amount the change of the pH of this solution is neglegible hence we tells that this shows a resistivity when adding an acid or a base .when an acid is added OH ions reacts and form H2O and NH4OH dissociates and give the OH ions to the solution .When an base is added NH+ ions react with OH ions added and form NH4OH which dissociates weakly to NH+ ions and OH- ions .

ammonia reacts with water as NH3 + HOH = NH4OH. now NH4OH furnishes OH ions when in water, but the ease of giving these ions is very low.hence ammonia is a weak base

No, NH4OH is not a strong electrolyte. It is considered a weak electrolyte because its dissolution abilities are usually less than 10 percent.

It is a base because it is part of common household cleaning products.

The chemical name of NH4OH is ammonium hydroxide.

First of all it is better not to speak of NH4OH in solution but of dissolved NH3 *) CH3COOH + NH3 (+ H2O) <--> CH3COO- + NH4+ (+ H2O) Both acetic acid and ammonia are weak acid/base and so are acetate and ammonium *) but if you insist on writing NH4OH, you'll get: CH3COOH + NH4OH <--> CH3COO- + NH4+ + H2O

Ammonium hydroxide is a base

The name of the base represented by the formula NH4OH is ammonium hydroxide. It is a solution of ammonia in water.

Ammonium Chloride (NH4Cl) is a salt of a strong acid (HCl) and a weak base (NH4OH). Hence, in an aqueous solution, it shows acidic properties.When mixed with water, it gets hydrolysed as follows.NH4Cl + H2O ---> NH4OH + HClThe salt and the strong acid (HCl) get ionised while the weak base (NH4OH) remains unionised.NH4+ + Cl- + H2O ---> NH4OH + H+ + Cl-Cancelling the Cl- ions from both sides.NH4+ + H2O ---> NH4OH + H+Theร‚?H+ร‚?ions left in the solution gives the solution it's acidic properties.

It is a strong base because it is highly soluble in water forming the NaOH and NH3 which further produces NH4OH .

Common glass cleaner such as windex is a weak base. The name for the chemical formula is ammonium hydroxide . The formula is NH4OH-

A weak base is a type of base. This type of base is considered weak because when it is put in an aqueous solution, it cannot ionize.

Aqueous ammonia is sometimes called ammonium hydroxide because ammonia (NH3) reacts with water to a small degree to produce ammonium hydroxide (NH4OH).NH3 + H2O NH4OHBecause ammonia is a weak base only small amounts of ammonium hydroxide are actually formed and an equilibrium is established.

NH3 = ammonia, gaseous AND in solution, weak base (sometimes as wrongly presented as NH4OH, because ammonia is not a hyroxide!, it isn't a strong base like OH-)NH4+ = ammonium, conjugated acid of ammonia, salty cation.

Ammonium hydroxide is a base.

It is a weak base because it does not completely ionize when dissolved in water.

Examples are: NH4OH, Zn(OH)2, C5H5N.

Any substance which has a low dissociation in water is a weak electrolyte. Example:- weak acids like CH3COOH and weak bases like NH4OH

No, water is weaker than it.
