What is the balanced equation for sodium bicarbonate + sulfuric acid producing carbon dioxide + water + sodium sulfate and sodium bicarbonate + hydrochloric acid producing carbon dioxide + water + sodium chloride.
Also are these two the correct word equations for neutralizing acid spills
Yes, NaHCO3 is widely used for neutralizing HCl and H2SO4 spills.
NaHCO3 + 2HCl ==> H2O + CO2 + NaCl
2NaHCO3 + H2SO4 ==> Na2SO4 + 2CO2 + 2H2O
