Please reply as soon as possible, I really need the answer urgently. How many grams of NaOH are required to completely neutralize 100ml of 1M solution of H2SO4?
Start with the equation for the reaction
NaOH + H2SO4 -> Na2SO4 + H2O
which you need to balance.
Then from the equation how many moles of NaOH react with each mole of H2SO4?
Calculate number of moles of H2SO4 used (M)
M=0.1 x 1 M =
How many moles of NaOH needed? (N)
Calculate molecular mass of NaOH (MM)
mass required = MM x N
Thanks for help,
Just a bit of confusion,
Upon balancing, he equation appears like this:
2NaOH + H2SO4 --> Na2SO4 + 2H2O
So it is clear that 2 moles of NaOH are needed to react each mole of H2SO4, then why use M = 0.1 x 1M = ?
And what's 0.1 in this formula?
Awaiting your reply.
