Answer:

Approx. #0.25*mol*L^-1............# with respect to #H_2SO_4#

Explanation:

We need (i) a stoichiometric equation:

#H_2SO_4(aq) + 2NaOH(aq) rarr Na_2SO_4(aq) + 2H_2O(l)#

And (ii) equivalent quantities of sodium hydroxide.........

#"Moles of NaOH"=28.00xx10^-3Lxx0.18*mol*L^-1=5.040xx10^-3*mol#

And thus #[H_2SO_4]=(1/2xx5.040xx10^-3*mol)/(10xx10^-3L)=??#
