Neutralization refers to a chemical reaction in which an acid and a base interact with the formation of a salt; with strong acids and bases the essential reaction is the combination of hydrogen ions with hydroxyl ions to form water. The method is based on the fact that one gram equivalent of the acid completely neutralises one gram equivalent of the base and vice versa.
A reaction between an acid and a base that yields a salt and water is termed as neutralization. Here you can calculate the equivalent weight of acid or base.
n. tests — tests based on the ability of an antibody to neutralize the biological activity of an antigen.
Calculate the equivalent weight of acid or base for the given details.
Weight of acid or base in grams = 25
Volume of base or acid = 30
Normality = 15
Equivalent weight of acid or base = 12.5
Equivalent weight of acid or base = (Weight of acid or base in grams / Volume of base or acid) * Normality
