We’re being asked to determine which among the given reactions is a neutralization reaction.


Neutralization Reaction

▪ when an acid and a base react and neutralize each other to produce water (not all the time) and salt (always)
salt is a chemical compound composed of cations (positively charged ion) and anions (negatively charged ions)

acid + base → water + salt


Let’s analyze each reaction given:

a. KCl + NaNO3 → KNO3 + NaCl
