Considering the tube wherein NaOH (1 M) was added to benzoic acid.
a) what reaction would occur in the tube?
b) write a balance equation that supports your explanation above?
c) describe what would happen if u added HCL (6 M) to the same tube?

please help!! thank you

  • Chemistry -

    acid + base >> a salt plus water
    In this case, is sodium benzoate a salt?

    Add HCl? If the pH of the solution is 2 or less, then the sodium benzoate will react to form Sodum chloride (aq) and solid benzoic acid. So you have to add enough HCl to get the pH down to the range of 2.
