    type of reaction is ACID + BASE ---> SALT + WATER H3PO4 + KOH the base is potassium:K(charge+1) the acid is phosphate(charge-3) -to neutralize the -3 charge you need a +3 charge therefor K must equal 3K the correct formula is K3PO4 the left behind H will form with OH and form H20 H3PO4 + KOH ----> K3PO4 + H2O..... unbalanced H3PO4 + 3KOH ---> K3PO4 + 3H20 ...... BALANCED Above reaction is the net reaction product. Reaction will complete in three steps. 1. First Potassium di hydrogen phosphate will be produced 2. Further neutralization will take place then to form Di Potassium Hydrogen Phosphate 3 correct
