When an acid reacts with a base, a neutral salt is formed by the neutralisation process. As neutralisation process is an exothermic reaction, the temperature of the solution increases.
(i) An acid reacts with a base to form salt and water. This reaction is called the neutralisation reaction. Such a reaction is always exothermic in nature. Hence, the temperature of the solution increases.
(ii) In an exothermic reaction, heat is liberated thereby increasing the temperature.
