# What is a Bronsted Base?

A Brønsted Base is a substance which can accept proton(s) or ${H}^{+}$.
An example would be $N {H}_{3}$
It has a high affinity to accept an ${H}^{+}$ ion to form $N {H}_{4}^{+}$.
Consider $H C l$ and $N {H}_{3}$ in a region.
The acid $H C l$ releases ${H}^{+}$ and $C {l}^{-}$ ions. The Brønsted Base, $N {H}_{3}$ accepts an ${H}^{+}$ and results in formation of a salt, $N {H}_{4}^{+} C {l}^{-}$.
