Define the terms: Acid, alkali and salt
An acid is a compound, which releases hydronium ions (H3O+) as the only positive ions in solution. An alkali is a compound, which releases hydroxyl ions (OH-) as the only negative ions in solution. A salt is one of the products of neutralization bet

What is a neutralization reaction?
Neutralization is essentially a chemical reaction between H3O+ ions of an acid with OH- ions of the base, to give undissociated molecules of water.

How does a strong acid differ from a concentrated acid?
The strength of an acid depends upon its dissociation power whereas concentration depends on water content in the acid.
