I know that every reaction that occurs in a solution must have a driving force leading to the kicking out of some ions from the solution. These reactions include redox , double-displacements and acid/base. Now my question is if i react aqueous ammonia with aqueous hydrochloric acid what will be the driving force of this reaction?
I know that ammonium chloride is formed, but this salt is soluble in water so exists as aqueous ions. But for reactions in solutions some ions have to be removed, as a result creating a driving force for the reaction. Like in the case of Arrhenius acid-base reactions, the formation of liquid water is the driving force of the reaction.
