this crazy lab is askign me to add 2 equations (the same way you add math equations it says)

so

H + OH ----> H20 + NA + CL ----> NACL = ??

first time I've seen this :grumpy:

Not sure about the "adding" part, but this makes sense:

H+ + Cl- + Na+ + OH- --> H2O + NaCl

You can't have plain Cl, must be Cl2.

To add equations you add left sides and right sides separately.

What are the equations you have to add?

thanks borke, seems you nkow what your saying lol
ill give you them, ca you add them so i seew hat you mean.

reaction 2:
NaOH + Hcl ---> H20 + NaCl + 5.25 kJ

first reacions a decomposition one.

First reaction is dissociation, not decomposition.

However, adding these two doesn't make sense, as these are apples and pears.

What is exact wording of the question?
