We’re being asked to write the reaction equation between H2SO4 and KOH and find the concentration of H2SOafter some KOH is added to the solution.


Let’s first write the balanced reaction between H2SO4 and KOH:

Reactants:

2SO4

▪ oxyacid → 2 more oxygens than hydrogens → strong oxyacid
▪ a strong acid → will completely dissociate in solution
H2SO4(aq) → 2 H+(aq) + SO42-(aq)
