Neutralization reactions

What would a neutralization reaction that resulted in the formation of zinc nitrite look like?

Hello,

The equation is that you add zinc hydroxide to nitrous acid which is HNO2, when you add the base and acid together, it will create a neutralization reaction which will result in one h2o molecule and zinc nitrite.

Hope this helps
