Can someone check my answers for me thank you. I have the equation balanced below.
2H2O + K2SO4 --> H2SO4 + 2KOH
Ionic equation for the reaction between sulfuric acid and potassium hydroxide.
2H+ + SO4^2- + 2K+ + 2OH- --> 2K+ + SO4^2- + 2H2O
Net equation would be:
2H+ + 2OH- + 2H2O
The first equation you have written goes the other direction;i.e., it should be written as 2KOH + H2SO4 ==> 2H2O + K2SO4. The second (ionic equation) is ok and the net equation is ok.
