  1. Examples of acid/base reactions are
    1. HCl + NaOH ==> H2O + NaCl
    2. HNO3 + NaOH ==> H2O + NaNO3
    3. HClO3 + NaOH ==> H2O + NaClO3
    etc.
    Note that an acid + base gives a salt + water. The salts are always spectator ions and the net ionic equation is
    H^+(from the acid) + OH^-(from the base) ==> H2O
