# Is methylamine a Bronsted-Lowry base?

Jun 18, 2018

My word....

#### Explanation:

In aqueous solution, methylamine undergoes the equilibrium...

$M {e}_{2} N H \left(a q\right) + {H}_{2} O \left(l\right) r i g h t \le f t h a r p \infty n s M {e}_{2} N {H}_{2}^{+} + H {O}^{-}$

You will have to look up the equilibrium constant in your text. When someone opens a can of methylamine in the lab, everybody knows it because it has a very fishy, and ammoniacal odour that will bring the neighbours screaming....
