Perhaps there ought to be the equivalent of an edit conflict warning page, if the page is deleted before saving... كسيپ Cyp 17:45 2 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Perhaps an example of what a very high pH is would help -- eg. "between 10 and 14", if that's true! --Sam

In fact what differenciate a strong base from a weak base is the fact that all the compound is dissociated in a strong base. But it doesn't really make sense to talk about pH here, since it all depends on the quantity of base versus the volume of water.


There's been some discussion on the strong acid page to merge with acid. I wonder if the same could be done here? Olin 22:10, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

No. They are seperate concepts. 01:53, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

strong acid/strong base[edit]

Perhaps some clarification could be added to distinguish between the chemist's definition of "strong" (strong tendancy to break into ions) and the everyday definition of "strong" (concentrated or strongly corrosive). For example, hydrofluoric acid is an extremely toxic chemical used to etch glass and clean metal, yet it is chemically classified as a weak acid.
