Acids,Bases, and Salts


Describe the process of neutralisation with the help of an example.


Neutralisation reaction: It is a process of reaction of an acid and a base to give salt and water with the evolution of heat. Thus, a new substance is formed called salt.

For example, when an ant bites, it injects formic acid into the skin. The effect is neutralized by rubbing moist baking soda (sodium hydrogen carbonate) or calamine (containing zinc carbonate).
