It takes 33.48 mL of 0.1610 mol/L NaOH to neutralize 25.00 mL of a sulfuric acid solution. What is the concentration of the sulfuric acid?
The balanced equation for the reaction is:
2NaOH + H₂SO₄ → Na₂SO₄ + 2H₂O
Moles of NaOH = 0.033 48 L ×
Moles of H₂SO₄ = 5.390 28 × 10⁻³ mol NaOH ×
Molarity of H₂SO₄ =
