Answer:

#"Salt and water..........."#

Explanation:

The balanced chemical equation is given by:

#NaOH(aq) + HCl(aq) rarr NaCl(aq) + H_2O(l)#

Because the sodium ions and the chloride ions are along for the ride, and remain in solution as aquated ions, #[Na(OH_2)_6]^(+)#, etc., we could write the net ionic equation, which illustrates bond formation:

#H^(+) + HO^(-)rarr H_2O(l)#

ELSE

#H_3O^(+) +HO^(-) rarr 2H_2O(l)#

Both these equations are equivalent.
