Answer:

A #2.7*mL# volume of sulfuric acid is required for equivalence.

Explanation:

We need the stoichiometric equation:

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

And thus we need #1/2# an equiv of sulfuric acid, i.e.

#1/2xx12xx10^-3*Lxx0.45*mol*L^-1=2.7xx10^-3*mol#

#"Volume"="moles"/"concentration"=(2.7xx10^-3*mol)/(1*mol*L^-1)#

#=2.7xx10^-3*L=2.7*mL#..........
