Okay, this will be review on the Iranians definition for a base. So this is just one way that we can define how a base behaves in solution. This is probably the most specific definition of the multiple ones that you can use. So in this case, we need to make sure that the solution that we're talking about is in a quick solution, meaning that water is the solvent. So you can see from the reaction they have written out here that water please. A. A key part in that it's one of the reactant eso I'm representing the base here as be and C as it interacts with the water and solution is picking up a proton become the BH plus, which is what we call its conjugate acid. But the important part here, in terms of this definition, is that it's also producing this O H minus, which is called the hydroxide ion
