Since the products of reactions of acid + base and acid + metal oxide are same. Why acid + metal oxide reaction is not neutralization reaction?
Statement 1: Metal oxides are basic in nature.
Statement 2: Metal oxides neutralize the effect of acids and release water, similar to the reaction of a base with an acid.
True or false?
(a) Oxides of metals are basic.
(b) Common salt is acidic.
(c) Salts corrode metals.
(d) Bases are formed by the neutralization reaction between acids and salts.
(e) Salts are neutral.
Explain reaction of metal oxides with acids and bases.
