When H2O is added to acid it begins to boil due to the strong reaction between the acid and the Base (the water).

Don´t add H2O to acids add acid to water.

Water is both an acid and a base, when it is reacting with acid it becomes base and reacts with base it becomes acid.

Is H2O an acid or a base?

H2O can be either or a base or an acid. This is known as being amphiprotic, which means that this substance can either donate or accept an electron. When water donates an electron (acid) it becomes OH- and when water accepts an electron (base) it becomes H3O+.
