    In a reaction on paper or in an experiment in a lab?

    I can suddenly imagine a student literally mixing acid and base together on a sheet of paper, and I'm all like, "You're doing it wrong!" But seriously, to keep it simple "Organic" means "has Carbon".

    I meant like identifying at a reaction on a sheet of paper and determining which one is the acid and which is the base. Idk what you're talking about.

    Hydrogen gas is a potential product of an acid base reaction. Hydrogen gas is an inorganic product.

    Organic means both carbon and hydrogen. Inorganic is everything other than carbon or hydrogen.

    Some books claim a carbon-hydrogen bond is necessary for it to be considered an organic molecule, other a carbon-carbon bond, but not hydrogen gas! Robert T. Morrison, Robert N. Boyd, and Robert K. Boyd, Organic Chemistry, 6th edition (Benjamin Cummings, 1992, ISBN 0-13-643669-2

    Hydrogen gas doesn't contain carbon, obviously.

    Exactly, and is inorganic.
