Question

Describe the process of neutralization with the help of an example.

Solution 1

The reaction between an acid and a base is known as neutralization reaction. In this reaction, both acid and base cancel each other’s effect. Neutralisation reaction results in the formation of salt and water. During this reaction, energy in the form of heat is evolved.

Acid + Base → Salt + Water + Heat

For example, when sodium hydroxide (NaOH) is added to hydrochloric acid (HCl), sodium chloride (NaCl) and water (H2O) are obtained.

Solution 2

The reaction between an acid and a base is known as neutralisation. Salt and water are produced in this process with the evolution of heat.

Antacids like milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide), baking soda, etc. which contain a base are used for reducing acidity in stomach when excessive acid released by glands.
