Can someone just check this one for me?
The neutralization reaction between
Al(OH)3 and HNO3 produces a salt with the formula Al(NO3)3 + H2O
Yes and no.
It DOES produce a salt and that salt is Al(NO3)3 with the formula you have. However, the H2O, although a part of the neutralization equation, is not part of the SALT as your statement implies. I think you know the difference; you just need to adjust the way you wrote the answer.
