Writing Chemical Equations

Postby AChoudhry_1L » Wed Nov 27, 2019 9:38 pm

When writing out chemical equations with acids and bases, how do you know what pairs with what?

if you're talking about neutralization reactions, what I do is make H2O (a lot of the time the hydroxide comes from the base and the other H comes from the acid) and then pair whatever is leftover to make a salt.

A very general way of writing acid/base reactions is to have the acid donate a hydrogen and the base accept a hydrogen. The base will gain a hydrogen and the acid will lose a hydrogen in the reaction.
