What would happen if you mixed sugar and sulferic acid together?

    sorry, wrong question!

    You told me too late. I answered it anyway.

    If the sulfuric acid is not very strong, not much of anything. BUT if the sulfuric acid is concentrated acid, as it comes out of the bottle it's about 98%, it dehydrates the sugar. When water is pulled from the sugar it leaves carbon and a syrupy mess that is VERY dangerous because it is a concentrated H2SO4 slurry. Usually there is enough heat evolved, also, that the pile of sugar we started with ends up as carbon in a mound several times higher than it started.
