Calculate the equivalent weight of H2SO4

The molecular formula of sulfuric acid is H2S 4 .

Its molecular mass is = (1 × 3) + 3 2 + (1 6 × 4)

= 2 + 32 + 64 = 98 u

The expression for the equivalent weight of an acid is

Equivalent weight = Molecular mass/ Number of replaceable hydrogen present

sulphuric acid contains two replaceable hydrogen. Substitute values in the above expression.

Equivalent weight = 98/2 = 49u
