1 Answer

Answer:

An acid and base always react to form a salt and water, and it is called neutralization.

Explanation:

The salt formed in this reaction is sodium chloride, #"NaCl"#. The equation for the reaction is:

#"NaOH"(aq) + "HCl"(aq) -> "NaCl"(aq) + "H"_2"O"(l)#

The numbers of #"Na"#, #"O"#, #"H"#, and #"Cl"# atoms on the left and the right sides are as such equal.
