What is a neutralisation reaction ? Give two examples.


Answer :

The reaction between an acid and a base to form salt and water is called a neutralisation reaction.
In a neutralization reaction between an acid and a base the typical outcome is a salt formed by the positive ion from the base and the negative ion from the acid.


We will look at examples as:
1: Sulphuric Acid and Potassium Hydroxide neutralize each other in the following reaction:
$$ H_{2}SO{4} + 2KOH \rightarrow K_{2}SO_{4} + 2H_{2}O $$
2: Hydrochloric Acid and Potassium Hydroxide neutralize each other in following reaction:
$$ HCL + KOH \rightarrow KCL + H_{2}O $$
