Abstract: For any (not necessarily commutative) algebra *C* over a commutative ring *k* Sweedler defined a cohomology set, denoted here by , which generalizes Amitsur's second cohomology group . In this paper, if *I* is a nilpotent ideal of *C* and is *K*-projective, a natural bijection is established. Also, when are fields and *C* is a commutative *B*-algebra, the sequence is shown to be exact if the natural map induces a surjection on units, is induced by the inclusion, and *r* is the ``restriction'' map.
