What is a neutralisation reaction? Give two examples .  

 

Answer

A reaction of an acid with a base to form salt and water is a neutralization reaction.When an acid is mixed with a base, the acid and base neutralise each other’s effect and form salt and water. Since acid and base neutralize each other's effect,it is called neutralization reaction.

 

For Example:

When Sodium Hydroxide ( NaOH) , a base, reacts with Hydrochloric acid (HCl) , it forms the salt, Sodium Chloride (NaCl) and Water.
