# Should we add a base to water, or do the reverse?

Apr 13, 2017

You know the order of addition is important in the addition of acid to water. Why? Because if you spit in acid, it spits back at you. And so you don't spit in the acid, and DON'T add water to the acid, and $\text{do as you oughter, add acid to the water...........}$
But remember what I said with regard to acid: it is $\text{ALWAYS ACID TO WATER}$, and never the reverse.
