Write a chemical equation to show the neutralization of sulfuric acid ( H 2 SO 4 ) by sodium hydroxide ( NaOH ) .

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The chemical equation for the neutralization of the given acid and base is to be written.

Concept Introduction:

Neutralization is a chemical reaction in which an acid and a base react to form their respective salts and involvement of H+ and OH forms water. Generally, the reaction is represented as:

Acid+Base Salt + Water

When a solution is neutralized, it means the respective salt is formed from equal weight of both, the acid and the base. The salt formed from neutralization reaction is neither acidic nor basic in nature.

Explanation of Solution

The reaction between sodium hydroxide and sulfuric acid is as follows:

2NaOH(l) + H2SO4(l)Na2SO4(l) + 2H2O

This reaction is highly exothermic in nature. This means it liberates heat or energy. The water form in this reaction is generally in vapor form, and the salt is called sodium sulfate
