Write out the baclanced chemical equation for the reaction. At least write out the reactants.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

NO! We aren't here to make your homework!
Show us your results and we'll help you.

Hint: ACID + BASE -------> SALT + WATER
