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 gas
magnesium + carbonic acid --> magnesium carbonate + hydrogen
Mg + H2CO3--> MgCO3+ H2

Salt is, by definition not an acid or a base.

Yes. An acid-base reaction forms a salt and water. acid+ + base− = salt + water

I'm assuming you mean a salt neutralising an acid or base- This can not actually happen, because a salt is already 'Neutralised' An acid can neutralise a base, and a base neutralise an acid, but when Base+Acid reacts, a salt is formed. Adding a salt to a acid or base solution will only make it salty.

when an acid and a base is mixed together it produces water and salt. acid+base=water+salt

Acid, base, Salt, Water Acid + Base --> Salt + Water :)

the answer to this question is that a plasterboard is an acid. It isn't a base or salt. Are you sure?

Its neither a base, acid, nor salt. It is the alcohol methanol.

guys the conclusion of acid base and salt is a salt only..... good luck guys...........

it is neutral.Salt is just salt It's not acid or not base. But salt can be the product of the reaction between acid and base.It is neither. When a base and an acid react together, AKA neutralization reaction, it forms water, or H2O,which is neither a base or an acid. When the water evaporates, the ions come together and becomes salt.

by neutralisation reaction:- when acid reacts with a base then the product is salt and water. acid+base=salt+water

MgCO3 + H2SO4 -> MgSO4 +CO2 + H2O An acid-base reaction also releasing carbon dioxide.

Salt can be neutral, acidic, or basic. Salts are formed through the reaction of an acid and a base. If the reaction involves a strong acid and a strong base, the resulting salt is neutral (like NaCl table salt). A weak acid and a strong base result in a basic salt, and a strong acid and a weak base form an acid salt.

CH3CH3 is not a base, acid or a salt. The answer would be other. It is ethane.

An acid reacts with a base to produce a salt and water.

Acid + Base > Salt + Water

No, it is not a salt. For example: ACID = H-(anion) BASE = (cation)-OH A salt is obtained from a reaction between an ACID and a BASE: ACID + BASE -> (anion)(cation) + H-OH (anion)(cation) is a salt, a ionic compound An acid is a covalent compound

Na2SO4, or sodium sulfate, is a salt formed in a neutralization reaction with sulfuric acid (an acid) and sodium hydroxide (a base). So it is neither an acid or base, it is a salt.

The answer is simply in your question. an acid base salt is a salt that is formed when you react a base with an acid.

Acid + Base → Water + Salt So it's salt.

Butane is neither an acid, a base, nor a salt. It is a neutral molecular compound.

That compound would be a base. Acid + base ==> salt + water.
