Solution

## Reaction of Sulphur dioxide with water:When sulphur dioxide is dissolved in water, it will lead to the formation of Sulphurous acid.The balanced chemical reaction can be represented as:$\underset{\mathrm{Sulphur}\mathrm{dioxide}}{{\mathrm{SO}}_{2}\left(\mathrm{g}\right)}+\underset{\mathrm{Water}}{{\mathrm{H}}_{2}\mathrm{O}\left(\mathrm{l}\right)}\to \underset{\mathrm{Sulphrous}\mathrm{acid}}{{\mathrm{H}}_{2}{\mathrm{SO}}_{3}\left(\mathrm{aq}\right)}$Therefore, SO2 when passed through water forms a solution of Sulphurous acid.
