but it's This will be a brief discussion on Bronson Laurie basis. Um, so we know there's different ways that we can define how a base behaves in solution. So usually the first type of definition that you learn about is the most specific. Um, it's theory. Gnaeus definition of a base. Um, and this is applies to acquiesce solutions. So we're talking about when water it's a solvent because water sort of an integral part of the equation here, Um, so under that definition, a basis to find as a substance that produces the hydroxide ions or the O H minus ions in solution. So the brown said Lori, definition of a base is a little bit more broad in that it can apply to solutions that do not have water to solve it and just need some sort of product solvent. So something that has an acidic pro time on it. So the situation I have written here can be applicable to um, both of these definitions just have the general form written out here for illustrative purposes. So I have being here representing the base of the interacts with water. You see that is producing this hydroxide ion and also we can see that the congregate acid here is BH plus. So this is showing us that the base has picked up a proton. It's become protein ated as a result of this interaction. And again, it would not have to be water here, that stone in the proton, it could be any sort of product solvent.
