# How is the reaction between sodium hydroxide, and hydrochloric acid represented?

Aug 27, 2017

This is an acid-base reaction. A salt, sodium chloride, and water are formed.

#### Explanation:

Symbolically...........

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

What does the $\Delta$ symbol represent?

i.e.

$\text{Acid + base "rarr" salt + water}$
