1. What salt would result if sulfuric acid (H2SO4) was neutralized with lithium hydroxide (LiOH)?

a. LiSO 4
b. Li(SO4)2
c. Li2SO4

Explain your answer:


Expert Answer

Step 1

The reaction between acid and base is termed as neutralization and it results in the formation of salt and water.

In the given question, the acid is H2SO4  and the base is LiOH

Step 2

The reaction between is H2SO4  and LiOH occurs as follows,

 H2SO4  + LiOH → Li2SO4 +H2O

The salt formed here is Li2SO4

Step 3

The molecular formula of salt is Li2SO4  due to the Valencies.

To predict the molecular formula,Li+ should be multiplied by the valency of SO4-2 &nb...
