"Common salt", with the chemical formula NaCl, does not contain any hydrogen. The much larger chemical class of "salts" includes some examples that do contain hydrogen, for example the ammonium salts.

Common table salt is Sodium Chloride ( NaCl ) and has no hydrogen atoms.

I know that table salt has no hydrogen atoms; NaCl2

Hydrogen (H) is a chemical element, a gas, not a salt.

Hydrogen chloride can emit protons to the medium. It is not a salt but a strong acid.

Common table salt is sodium chloride; it does not contain any hydrogen. Most of the compounds called "salts" are a metal plus a halogen. They also do not contain any hydrogen.

its a salt. Acids have a hydrogen in front of them.

if the salt contains a ionize able hydrogen atom the this salt will b termed as an acidic salt..... as acid contains ionize able hydrogen atoms.... examples are.. NAHSO4

Uranium, boron, hydrogen are chemical elements. Salt (NaCl) is a chemical compound.

Salt has an ionic bond, not a hydrogen bond.

Metal reacts with acid to form a salt and hydrogen.e.g - Sodium + Hydrochloric Acid forms Sodium Chloride + Hydrogen

No. Salt does not produce any such reaction.

Sodium hydrogen phosphate is an acid.

acid +metal ->salt+ hydrogen eg sulphuric acid + magnesium -> magnesium sulphate+ hydrogen

Hydrogen can be extracted from salt water by the method of electrolysis, which involves passing an electric current through the water.

Water is an oxide of hydrogen.

None. Pure table salt is NaCl. It contains only sodium (Na) and clorine (Cl) atoms.

Uranium, boron and hydrogen are chemical elements. Salt (sodium chloride, Na Cl) is a chemical compound.

Salt, because is a chemical compound - NaCl; uranium, boron, hydrogen are chemical elements.

No. Hydrogen is in many compounds such as organic compounds, like hydrocarbons used in fuel. They are also in many Biological compounds in the body. But certainly not in all compounds. for example. NaCl, Sodium chloride, known as table salt. Contains no hydrogen.

Salt, and its a lot cheaper too.

Copper is less reactive than hydrogen (look at the reactivity series), so will not take the place of hydrogen in an acid to form a salt and hydrogen. Metals which are more reactive than hydrogen will take the place of hydrogen to form a salt + hydrogen gas. For example: Magnesium + hydrochloric acid --> magnesium chloride + hydrogen

metal + acid ---> salt + hydrogen gas Magnesium is a metal. Therefore, Magnesium + acid ---> a magnesium salt + hydrogen gas

MgCO3 is called magnesium carbonate. It's classified as salt.Since that the reaction of metal with acid forms salt of acid and hydrogen gas:metal + acid --> salt of acid + hydrogen gasmagnesium + carbonic acid --> magnesium carbonate + hydrogenMg + H2CO3--> MgCO3+ H2

Acid + Base = salt + water Acid + active metal = salt + hydrogen gaas
