Neutralization Reaction Formula
The following formula is used to calculate the equivalent weight of an acid or base undergoing a neutralization reaction.
EW = (W/V) * N
- Where EW is the equivalent weight of acid or base (g)
- W is the present weight of acid or base (g)
- V is the total number of acid or base
- N is the normality
Neutralization Reaction Definition
A neutralization reaction is the process of when an acid and base react to form water and salt.
Neutralization Reaction Example
How to calculate a neutralization reaction?
- First, determine the weight of the acid or base.
Calculate the total weight of either the acid or base.
- Next, determine the volume.
Calculate or measure the volume of the same acid or base.
- Next, determine the normality.
You can use the calculator linked above to determine the normality.
- Finally, calculate the equivalent weight.
Calculate the equivalent weight of the acid or base needed for the reaction.
An acid is a molecule that has the ability to form a covalent bond with an electron pair.
