in NCERT chemistry books in organic chemistry sometimes hydrolysis rxn takes places by acid and water(H2SO4 + H2O/ H3O+/H+ + H2)), base with water(NaOH + H2O/ KOH + H2O) and other times only with water(H2O)

what is the difference between the three and when do we use them in rxns ?

hydrolysis means breaking or cleavage of compounds using water.... am I right?

request u to answer all questions pls

Expert Answer:

 Hydrolysis means reaction of organic compound with water to form two or more new substances. In hydrolysis reaction, Cleavage of bond take place and water is added.
 In different organic compounds cleavage/breaking of bond takes place in different ways so for that purpose we use different reagents. But for addition Only H2O is required so  H2O is common in all of them.
