Balance the equation of H2SO4 + NH4OH--- (NH4)2SO4 + H2O?



Answer:
H2SO4 +2 NH4OH >> (NH4)2 SO4 +2 H2O
H2SO4 + 2 NH4OH ------> (NH4)2SO4 + 2 H2O.
First examine the reactants...an acid (H2SO4) and a base (NH4OH). Note that the acid has 2 ionizable Hydrogens while the base has only 1 ionizable hydroxide group.

This tells you that you will need 2 NH4OH for every H2SO4-

H2SO4 + 2 NH4OH --->

Now what is left to form the products?

SO4-2 and 2 NH4+ and 2 H+ and 2 OH-
which are the following products-
(NH4)2SO4 + 2 H2O

H2SO4 + 2 NH4OH ---> (NH4)2SO4 + 2 H2O

You will be asked to balance many acid-base reactions in chemistry class. They all will be similar to this one.
