why washing soda is a base?
Asked by ruchika saini | 9th Jun, 2011, 02:31: PM
We know that bases react with acids to give salt and water and the reaction is known as neutralisation reaction.
In case of washing soda i.e. Na2CO3,reacts with acid to give salt,water and carbon dioxide.
Na2CO3(s) + 2HCl(aq)?2NaCl(aq) + H2O(l) + CO2(g)
Therefore, Na2CO3 is a base.
