Question

In a laboratory which is the other compound that is used along with sulphuric acid to produce nitric acid?


  1. KNO3
  2. HCl
  3. NH3
  4. SO2


Solution

The correct option is A KNO3

There are two compounds that are used for the production of nitric acid in a laboratory. In a laboratory, nitric acid is formed by the reaction of potassium nitrate and sulphuric acid. The other product that is produced is called potassium bisulphate (KHSO4). The equation for this reaction is given below.

KNO3+H2SO4KHSO4+HNO3

So the other compound that is used in this reaction is potassium nitrate (KNO3).
