What is formed when an acid and a base is mixed?

when an acid and a base combine, salt and water are formed. This process of reaction of an acid and base is called neutralisation.


Is Salt formed when an acid or a base react chemically?

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


How does salt neutralise?

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.


What forms when base react with acid they form salt and what?

acid+ base= salt + water


What is the general form for the simplest type of acid base reaction?

What are the reactants and products in a neutralization reaction?

In a neutralisation reaction, an acid and a base will react to form a salt and water. This salt will be either acidic, basic or neutral depending upon the pH of the reactions. General rules:weak acid + strong base → basic salt + waterstrong acid + weak base → acidic salt + waterstrong acid + strong base → neutral salt + waterweak acid + weak base → neutral salt + water


Is CaOH2 a base?

Calcium Hydroxide, or CaOH2, is a base. Generally compounds containing hydroxyl groups and metals will act as bases in reaction.


Can an acid and a base react to form an acid?

NO!!!! Remember the general acid reaction equations. Acid + Base = Salt +Water Acid +Alkali = Salt + Water Acid +Metal = Salt + Hydrogen Acid + Carbonate = Salt + Water + Carbon Dioxide. NB An Alkali is a soluble Base.


What is the conclusion of acid base and salt?

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


What is an acid neutralized by?
