#### Solution

NaCl is obtained by the reaction between NaOH and HCl.
$\ce{HCl + NaOH->NaCl + H2O}$

NaCl is a neutral salt. It is known as rock salt in crystalline form. Rock salt is simply crystallized salt, also known as halite. It is the result of the evaporation of ancient oceans millions of years ago. Sometimes, pressure from deep inside the Earth forces up large masses of rock salt to form salt domes.
