#### Explanation:

This problem is a bit unrealistic, as I could not really measure such a mass of sulfuric acid. Realistically, I could take a volume of sulfuric acid of a given concentration, which had an equivalent molar quantity to

Given the equation above, i.e. sulfuric acid is a diacid that requires 2 equiv of base, we require

If I had a

As you no doubt realize, the ability to write a stoichiometric equation is absolutely vital to answer the question.
