What is the net ionic equation when H2SO4 is neutralized by NaOH in aqueous solution?

Write the molecular equation.
H2SO4 + 2NaOH ==> Na2SO4 + 2H2O

Convert to ions.
2H^+ + SO4^= + 2Na^+ + 2 OH^- ==> 2Na^+ + SO4^= + 2H2O

Now cancel those ions that appear on both sides of the equation. What is left is the net ionic equation.

I shall be happy to check your answer.

2H^+ + 2OH^- --> 2H20
