2. Bases Properties and Examples

Salts of strong bases and strong acids

A strong acid HCl (hydrochloric acid) reacts with a strong base NaOH (sodium hydroxide) to form NaCl (salt = sodium chloride) and water. If the amounts of the acid and the base are in the correct stoichiometric ratio, then the reaction will undergo complete neutralization where the acid and the base both will lose their respective properties.HCL(aq) + NaOH(aq) → NaCl(aq) + H2O(l)strong         strong           salt         wateracid             base
