Okay, so this one sort of defines itself! An acid-base reaction is a reaction between an acid and a base.
In chemistry…A salt, when the result of an acid-base reaction, is a substance that consists of the ionic assembly of a positive ion (cation) from a base and the negative ion (anion) from an acid.So… not table salt. But, yes, NaCl (table salt) is a salt according to chemistry. But it's not the only salt.There are lots of different salts. Pretty much anything from the periodic table columns 1 and 2 with anything from column 17… And a whole lot more! A few include:
- sodium chromate
- potassium dichromate
- cobalt nitrate
- copper sulfate
- nickel chloride
That is NOT a complete list by far!
NaOH + HCl ---> NaCl + H2OKOH + HBr ---> KBr + H2O
