Silver Sulfate Structural Formula
Silver Sulfate structural formula is as shown in the figure below. Silver sulfate is formed when sulfuric acid reacts with silver nitrate. During the reaction, Ag+ ion is formed and hence 2 equivalent silver ions will give rise to a neutral salt along with 1 equivalent sulfate ion.
