  1. Remember this.
    acid + base = salt + H2O.

    I'll do the first one and leave the second for you.
    HCl + NaOH ==> NaCl + HOH. Just pull the H and OH out and what's left is the salt.

    HC2H3O2 + NaOH ==>
    On HC2H3O2, it's the FIRST H that is the acid H, the H3, for example, is part of the rest of the formula. I prefer to write acetic acid as HAc where H stands for the acidic H and Ac stands for the rest of the molecule.

  2. so that second one would end up being:
    NaOH + CH3COOH--> Na+ CH3COO + H2O
    ....right?
