Problem

A hydrochloric acid solution will neutralize a sodium hydroxide solution. Look at the following molecular views showing one beaker of HCl and four beakers of NaOHA beaker containing a solution of four green spheres labeled Cl- and four smaller white spheres labeled H+.Two beakers labeled a and b. Beaker a contains a solution of two purple spheres labeled Na+, and two molecules composed of a red sphere and smaller white sphere combined labeled OH-. Beaker b contains a solution of four purple spheres and four red-white molecules.Two beakers labeled c and d. Beaker c contains a solution of five purple spheres and five molecules composed of a red sphere and smaller white sphere combined. Beaker d contains a solution of eight purple spheres and eight molecules composed of a red sphere and smaller white sphere combined.

Which NaOH beaker will just neutralize the HCl beaker? Begin by writing a balanced chemical equation for the neutralization reaction.

Solution

Begin by writing a balanced chemical equation for the neutralization reaction.

HCl → strong binary acid
NaOH → group 1A or group 2A ion paired with OH- → strong base

Strong acid and strong base completely dissociate to their ions
