The materials used to create the salt and the water come from the acid and the base. T he pH of water is right around seven, so water is neutral—it is neither an acid nor a base. Because water forms from the reaction between acids and bases, this reaction between an acid and a base is also called a neutralization reaction. Common table salt is created from a reaction between an acid and a base. When hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide are combined, one of the products is water. The other product is sodium chloride, the chemical name for the salt we use in cooking.

When you do any experiments with acids or bases in the lab, be very careful. If you are mixing a strong acid with water, for example, start with the water and then add acid. Why? If you instead pour water into sulfuric acid, for example, the solution will boil and can “spit” sulfuric acid, which can burn your skin. If you add acid to the water, the acid is heavier and will sink. A titration is a special kind of experiment in which researchers can find the pH of an unknown liquid by comparing it to a known liquid.

Mold the dough around a soda bottle. Fill 2/3 of the bottle with water, a few drops of food coloring, and 6 drops of detergent. Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda into the bottle. Both the detergent and baking soda are bases. Now slowly pour vinegar, an acid, into the bottle.
