# Can you represent the reaction of sulfuric acid with ONE equiv of sodium hydroxide?

Oct 16, 2016

$N a O H \left(a q\right) + {H}_{2} S {O}_{4} \left(a q\right) \rightarrow N a H S {O}_{4} \left(a q\right) + {H}_{2} O \left(l\right)$

#### Explanation:

Of course, the given equation represents the 1:1 reaction. Sodium bisulfate will react with a second equiv of sodium hydroxide.

$N a O H \left(a q\right) + N a H S {O}_{4} \left(a q\right) \rightarrow N {a}_{2} S {O}_{4} \left(a q\right) + {H}_{2} O \left(l\right)$

Overall,

${H}_{2} S {O}_{4} \left(a q\right) + 2 N a O H \left(a q\right) \rightarrow N {a}_{2} S {O}_{4} \left(a q\right) + 2 {H}_{2} O \left(l\right)$
