When an acid is mixed with base a salt and water is formed. but when the same salt and water is mixed, do we get the acid and base?

- When an acid reacts with base, it forms salt and water which is a neutralisation reaction.
- This is not a reversible reaction.
- When salt is mixed with water, it get dissolved which is a physical mixing and not a chemical mixing.
- Upon evaporation of water, we can get back salt in the original solid form.
- Hence, we can not get back acid and base when salt and water are mixed.
