this is a question about how to write the reaction for mixing solid KOH with aqueous HCl...when i physically mixed the two there was gas formation (bubbles and heat were given off) but when i write the equation out i don't get where the gas is. the equation i got is:
KOH(s) + HCl(aq) --> H2O(l) +KCl(aq)
am i writing the equation wrong or was i wrong in concluding there was gas formation"
