1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Write balanced molecular and net ionic equations for the reaction of aqueous sulfuric acid with sodium hydroxide. 2. Relevant equations H2SO4 + NaOH --> 3. The attempt at a solution H2SO4 + NaOH --> H2O + NaSO4 Please apologize any mistakes I make in trying to post this question, I don't frequent forums. Regarding my question, I'm fairly certain I understand the basis of the reaction being made, and I am confident in writing the net ionic equation and cancelling the spectator ions. The problem I am having though (which I don't usually have a problem with), is balancing this equation. I have everything balanced except when it comes to the oxygens, and I am one off on the product side. I've tried things such as using a "1/2" number, then multiplying by 2, but it just doesn't seem to be working. Can anyone help me please?
