 When sulfuric acid reacts with zinc hydroxide, zinc sulfate and water are produced. The balanced equation for this reaction is: H2SO4(aq)+Zn(OH)2(s)-------->ZnSO4(aq)+2H2O(l)

Suppose  moles of sulfuric acid react.

The reaction consumes______moles of zinc hydroxide

The reaction produces_______moles of zinc sulfate and 

                                       _______ moles of water


Expert Answer

Step 1

Here, we have to determine number of moles of zinc hydroxide, zinc sulfate and water.

Step 2


H2S04(aq)Zn(OH)2(S) ZnSO4(aq) 2H20(I)

Image Transcriptionclose

H2S04(aq)Zn(OH)2(S) ZnSO4(aq) 2H20(I)

Step 3

From the above balanced chemical reaction we can say that

1 mole of H2SO4 is reacting with 1 mole of Zn(OH)...
