What type of reaction occurs when HCL is mixed with a NAOH solution to form a salt (NACL) and water.
Balanced chemical equation : HCl + NaOH = H2O + NaCl Salt metathesis reaction. hope this helps!.
This is an acid-base resction, but the broader term is a double-replacement reaction. The balanced equation is: HCl + NaOH -> NaCl +H2O
