    Uses of sulphuric acid Sulphuric acid is a very useful, referred as universal chemical because it is a commonly used chemical in the world and is used in a lot of manufacturing industries, for example, car battery, manufacturing fertilisers, refining crude oil, making phosphoric acid etc. This chemical is also known as one of the most important industrial chemical. This acid has helped us in many ways, making things easier for us. What is sulphuric acid? Sulphuric acid is a chemical compound

    with the sulfuric acid electrolyte produces a voltage. The supplying of energy to and external resistance the battery. When a lead acid battery cell produces energy, it converts chemical energy into electrical energy. During this process, Lead is oxidised at the anode according to this equation: Pb(s) → Pb2+(aq) + 2e- The reduction process in lead acid batteries occurs at the cathode, as shown above. Lead (from lead dioxide) is reduced at the cathode by protons in the sulphuric acid: PbO2(s) + 4H+(aq)

    Sulphuric Acid Production Should Not Be Banned Background Information Acids and bases are chemical compounds with certain properties, and are classified according to several different definitions. There are clear distinctions between the two types of compounds, and although they share some similarities in their physical and chemical properties, their uses and applications vary greatly. Acids can be described as having a sour taste, producing hydronium ions in water, forming a salt and water when

  • The Corrosion of Limestone Objects Due to Sulphuric Acid in Polluted Air: A Laboratory Research

    611 Words  | 2 Pages

    limestone objects are corroded by the sulfuric acid in polluted air. What chemical reaction is involved here? Sulfuric acid formation in the air emanates from pollutants released in the atmosphere especially, from manufacturing industries (Hewayde, Nehdi, Allouche & Nakhla, 2007). When the gas, (sulfur dioxide) is released into the air, it combines with oxygen to form another gas (sulfur trioxide, SO3), which reacts with water to form sulfuric acid (Revie, Uhlig & Wiley, 2011). The reaction is indicated

  • The Effect Of Sulphuric Acid Concentration On The Time Taken

    1251 Words  | 6 Pages

    Introduction: Aim: To investigate the effect of sulphuric acid concentration (mol L-1) on the time taken (seconds) for magnesium pieces to dissolve in it. Independent variable: The concentration of sulphuric acid. (mol L-1) Dependent variable: Time taken (seconds) for the magnesium to dissolve. Hypothesis: If the concentration of sulphuric acid (mol L-1) is increased, then the time taken for the magnesium to dissolve should decrease. Controlled variables: • The size of the beaker used to dissolve

  • Metal Sulphuric Acid Mine Research Paper

    Despite the Acid Rock Drainage being a good thing, it can lead to some horrible things for the ecosystem if it isn’t used submissively. For quite a while, Britannia Mine didn’t have Acid Mine Drainage under control. Britannia Mine was founded in 1900 in British Columbia and it closed down in 1974. Acid Mine Drainage was executing the ocean life beside Britannia Mine, Howe Sound. The acidic water was leaking

  • Altering the Amount of Heat Produced When Magnesium Reacts with Sulphuric Acid

    3352 Words  | 14 Pages

    Altering the Amount of Heat Produced When Magnesium Reacts with Sulphuric Acid When energy in the form of heat is given out of a reaction it is an exothermic reaction. Exothermic reactions usually need activation energy, the energy to break the bonds in the chemicals and to start the reaction. Once the bonds are broken new stronger bonds are formed. In an exothermic reaction energy in the form so heat is given out to the surrounding when the products are formed. Therefore

    be very dangerous and we might never know. Soaps and detergents are one of those things. Acids and bases are everywhere but, there are two specific types: Sulphuric Acid and Sodium Hydroxide which we use on a regular day bases. An acid classifies a wide range of materials including Sulphuric acid and bases Sodium Hydroxide. When manufacturing soaps they use Sodium Hydroxide, and detergents use Sulphuric Acid. But these two can be very poisonous, and there are many symptoms that may happen, some even

    acidity in the water, the likely acids the sodium hydroxide neutralised were sulphuric acid (H2SO4) and nitric acid (HNO3). The equations for the following reactions are: H2SO4 (aq) + 2NaOH (aq) → 2H2O (aq) + Na2SO4 (aq) HNO3 (aq) + NaOH (aq) → H2O (aq) + NaNO3 (aq) Using the titre volume, the pH of the samples can be figures out. Refer to Appendix for calculations. The concentration of acid in the Dhaka sample when assuming that the acid being neutralised is sulphuric acid is 0.00275 mol/L, and the pH

  • Coal Seam Gas

    853 Words  | 3 Pages

    Coal seam gas (CSG) is mostly composed of methane and is typically attached to coal underground. This gas is released when pressure on the coal seam is reduced by removing water from the seams (Queensland Government, 2014 ). In order to obtain the gas, wells are drilled into the coal seams, bringing water from the coal seams to the surface. This process reduces pressure and allows the gas to be released (Queensland Government, 2014 ). CSG is an important energy resource in Queensland and production
