A salt in chemistry is a compound of at least one metal and one non-metal. The salt that is sprinkled on food is sodium chloride (NaCl), which consists of a crystal of an equal number of sodium and chlorine atoms. «No Salt» is potassium chloride (KCl), which consists of a crystal of an equal number of potassium and chlorine atoms.
Acids form the following salts when reacting to a base:
|Acid name||Salt name|
An example of this would be Hydrochloric acid reacting with Sodium Hydroxide to form Sodium Chloride.
