Problem: Sodium carbonate is a reagent that may be used to standardize acids in the same way that you have used KHP in this experiment. In such a standardization it was found that a 0.432-g sample of sodium carbonate required 22.3 mL of a sulfuric acid solution to reach the end point for the reaction. Na2CO3(aq) + H2SO4(aq) → H2O(l) + CO2(g) + Na2SO4(aq) What is the molarity of the H2SO4?

Sodium carbonate is a reagent that may be used to standardize acids in the same way that you have used KHP in this experiment. In such a standardization it was found that a 0.432-g sample of sodium carbonate required 22.3 mL of a sulfuric acid solution to reach the end point for the reaction. 

Na2CO3(aq) + H2SO4(aq) → H2O(l) + CO2(g) + Na2SO4(aq) 

What is the molarity of the H2SO4?
