when alkali which can also be called a base reacts with an acid, a salt is usually form plus water. it is called a neutralization reaction.

When an acid and a base or an alkali react they form corresponding salt and water.

They react to form salt and water .

Acid and alkali react to form water.

Elements that can react with acid and alkali are called amphoteric eg. Zn, Al, etc.

when acid reacts with a alkali we get a salt and water

Yes, Acids react with Alkalis to form SALT and Water ACID + ALKALI > SALT + WATER

Hydrochloric acid will react with Aluminum to form Aluminum Chloride (AlCl3) but not with Nickel.

essentially, acid particles can be stated as H+ in the same way, alkali particles can be described as OH- in the reaction between acid and alkali, the example is: H+ + OH- --> H2O in another example, ethanoic acid can react with sodium hydroxide to form the same product: CH3COOH + NaOH <===> CH3COONa + H2O

Yes I believe it does.

Stomach acid oviasly cantains acid so when acid and alkali are mixed neutralasation happens.

CALCITE reacts to hydrochloric acid, as do other carbonate minerals. Generally, all basic (alkali) minerals will react with acids to form salts.

No. Acid + alkali reactions are neutralisation reactions. Combustion is a reaction with oxygen.

Alkanes do not react with acids or alkalis, because of their oily nature. Alkanes do not have a reactive group (e.g. -OH or -COOH or -COOC) so they cannot react with water. Alkanes are hydrocarbons - they do not have oxygen. An acid or an alkali is determined by their functional groups, H+ and -OH. If you add an acid to an alkali, the H+ group and the -OH group react with each other and form water. Alkanes do not have a functional group, so therefore cannot react with an acid or an alkali.

The products are a salt and water.

Chlorine itself is neither an acid nor a base but it does react to some degrees with water to form hypochlorous acid and hydrochloric acid. Cl2 + H2O --> HCl + HClO

because they produce(form)an alkali when they react with water.

Alkali earth metals react with oxygen to form basic oxides.

An Alkali is also a base. So, when reacted with an acid forms a salt and water as products

Neither. Potassium is a metal. It will react with water to produce potassium hydroxide, which is an alkali.

If they react until neutral then the pH will be 7. However, if there is an excess of acid the pH will be <7 and vice versa.

The Alkali Earth metals are found in group 1 and 2 of the periodic table. When reacted with hydrochloric acid, the vigour of the reactions increases going down the groups. So Lithium will react gently with hydrochloric acid whilst Caesium will react explosively. The same applies for the group 2 metals. Generally speaking, Alkali metals will react with hydrochloric acid: X + HCl -----------> XCl + H2 Where X is the alkali metal and will react to form a chloride

Many metals including alkali metals, alkali earth metals, chromium, nickel and zinc react with dilute hydrochloric acid.

Neutralisation, and yes that is how you spell it
