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"

  • chemistry -

    You have it correct.

  • chemistry -

    The gas bubbles you saw PROBABLY were the result of the heat produced and you had localized boilding. Also you may have had some air bubbles occluded to the solid KOH during the immersion step.
