Example 1: Acid - Hydrochloric acid - HCl Alkali - Sodium Hydroxide - NaOH Acid + Alkali -> Salt + Water HCl + NaOH -> NaCl + H2O Example 2: Acid - Hydrochloric acid - HCl Alkali - Magnesium Hydroxide - Mg(OH)2 Acid + Alkali -> Salt + Water 2HCl + Mg(OH)2 -> MgCl2 + 2H2O

Basically, it is where an acid (red) reacts with an alkali (blue) to create a neutral (green)

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

Acid plus alkali equals salt plus water.

Usually by reacting with an alkali.

2 lines witha cross through them

Acid + alkali ---> Salt + Water for exampleSodium Hydroxide + Hydrochloric Acid ---> Sodium Chloride + Water

Metal Carbonate + Acid --> Salt + Water + CO2

The equation for a neutralisation reaction is acid+alkali=neutral this is the correct answer hoped I helped you :)

total ionic equation (also known as the complete ionic equation) for the reaction of potassium carbonate with hydrochloric acid

when an acid reacts with an alkali(soluble base) salt and water are formed equation:- NaOH+HCL----->NaCL+h2O

The equation is , CuO + 2HNO3 = Cu(NO3)2 + H2O

phenolphthalein is a weak acid, when reacting with strong alkali it turns pink

No an alkali is the opposite of an acid. Alkali = basic; acid = acidic.

The general equation for reacting a metal oxide with an acid is: metal oxide + acid --> salt + water + hydrogen e.g Na2O + 2HCl --> 2NaCl + H2O Hope this helps seen as though no one else could answer this.
