Write a balanced equation for the neutralization of barium hydroxide by sulfuric acid .

Use the smallest possible integer coefficients.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Barium hydroxide reacts with sulfuric acid to produce barium sulfate and water.

Balanced equation mean cation and anion both reactant and both side are equal.

Step 2

In dilute solution

Ba(OH)2+H2SO4 → BaSO4 + 2H2O

Barium sulphate is insoluble and precipitates.

If the sulphuric acid is very strong the barium sulphate does not precipitate. In fact barium sulphate can be dissolved in concentrated sulphuric acid.
