In a chemical reaction of HCl + KNO3?

In a chemical reaction of HCl + KNO3 I mix together in a lab would the products be HCl + KNO3 -> HNO3 + KCl, or is this unrealistic and it s a just a soup mixture of floating H, Cl, NO3, and K in water?

    the "soup" idea is what you would have. more complicated than that, but as a simplistic mental image, sure. There will not be any solid precipitate, no new phase will be formed, so I am not even sure that I would use a soup model (no chunks of anything). Only salty water.

    There would be no reaction between solutions of hydrocloric acid and potassium nitrate.

    If you mix aqueous solutions of these ionic compounds together , no reaction occurs.

    You have a solution containing K+, H+, Cl- and NO3- ions.

    It is important to recognise that you have ions in solution.
