High School Chemistry : Help with Acid-Base Reactions

Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Help With Acid Base Reactions

What volume of a 1.2M solution of hydrochloric acid is needed to neutralize 50mL of a 3M sodium hydroxide solution?

Explanation:

The equation to use here is:

Here,  is the molarity of the acid,  is the volume of the acid,  is the molarity of the base, and  is the volume of the base. Don't forget to convert the volume to liters!

Example Question #1 : Help With Acid Base Reactions

What kind of reaction is an acid-base neutralization reaction?

Oxidation-reduction

Decomposition

Double-replacement

Single-replacement

Double-replacement

Explanation:

Below is a generic acid-base neutralization reaction:

The products are always water, and a salt. This salt is produced from the resulting ions  and . The  from the acid replaces the  from the base, and the  from the acid replaces the  from the base. Since there are two replacements, acid-base neutralizations are classified as double-replacement reactions.
