How would you write a balanced chemical equation for the neutralization of sulfuric acid with potassium hydroxide? What is the name and chemical formula of the salt formed in this reaction?
Balanced chemical equation:
The salt formed: potassium sulphate:
This is because potassium has a valency of just 1+ and, since sulphate ions have a valency of 2-, two potassium ions are required per sulphate ion in order for neutralisation to occur.
