Farmers use lime (calcium oxide) to neutralise acid soils. Your stomach contains hydrochloric acid, and too much of this causes indigestion. Antacid tablets contain bases such as magnesium hydroxide and magnesium carbonate to neutralise the extra acid. Bee stings are acidic.
Also question is, what is one example of a neutralization reaction?
Neutralization Reaction. Neutralization is a type of chemical reaction in which a strong acid and strong base react with each other to form water and salt. Heartburn, as well as an acidic stomach due to eating too much spicy food, can be relieved by taking an antacid.
What is neutralization and example?
A neutralization is a type of double replacement reaction. A salt is the product of an acid-base reaction and is a much broader term then common table salt as shown in the first reaction. The following are some examples of neutralization reactions to form salts. a. HCl + NaOH --> NaCl + HOH.
Why neutralization is important?
A neutralization reaction can be important for many reasons. One example is in agriculture. Neutralization reactions are when an acid and base react, typically forming water and salt. Soil can sometimes become more acidic (under 5.5).
