# What product results when sodium hydroxide reacts with hydrochloric acid?

May 22, 2017

$\text{Common salt............}$

#### Explanation:

We need a stoichiometric equation......

$H C l \left(a q\right) + N a O H \left(a q\right) \rightarrow N a C l \left(a q\right) + {H}_{2} O \left(l\right)$

This is simply an acid-base or neutralization reaction. And, these are generally represented as...............

$\text{Acid + Base"rarr"Salt +Water}$.

In the given reaction, you have a solution that is stoichiometric in sodium chloride. Wait long enuff, and the water will evaporate to give your salt, $\text{NaCl.}$
