Neutralization Equations

Postby Jasmine 2C » Sat Dec 07, 2019 11:22 am

Looking at question J.7, for neutralization equations in general, since they are balanced, are all of the reactants (and products) going to contain a neutral charge?
And applying this to a broader spectrum, do all chemical equations have reactants and products that have a neutral charge?

Neutralization reactions between acids and bases form a salt (ionic compound) and water. The salt is often written as something like NaCl (aq), but recognize that this actually means Na+ and Cl- dissolved in water. Not all chemical reactions will result in neutral products

A neutralization reaction involves a strong acid and strong base and produces a salt and water. Both the salt and water are neutral.
