    Your answer is right there in your equation -- if you evaporated all the solution (removed all the water) you would be left with what two elements?

    Calcium and bromine. Calcium has a +2 charge, bromide a -1 charge, so how would you combine those two to make an electrically neutral compound (zero electrical charge)?

    That's your answer!

    What i pick to do is to charm to a line between the 'H' and a few thing else of the acid, and do an identical with the 'OH' and a few thing else of the backside, like so: H2 / SO4 and Na / OH The reaction of a base and an acid creates a salt and H2O. quite placed the H and OH at the same time to variety H2O and the final reactants Na and SO4 would be practice as NaSO4, it particularly is the salt. H2SO4+NaOH ---> NaSO4+H2O... you may might desire to end particularly formulation balancing (comparable quantity of all forms of atom on the two side.)

    Ca(OH)2 (aq) + 2HBr(aq) --> CaBr2 ( calcium bromide salt) and water 2H2O
