pH of a Basic Solution

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

A weak base with Kb=4.240*10^-7 is added to water to make a 2.00*10^-1 M solution. what is the pH?

Since Kb is small, can assume that the dissociation is small relative to initial concentration of weak base.
