🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Stec's class at UIC.
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 NaOH.
Which NaOH beaker will just neutralize the HCl beaker? Begin by writing a balanced chemical equation for the neutralization reaction.
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
