USES OF SULPHURIC ACID
Sulphuric acid is used to produce chemical fertilizer such as ammonium sulphate and potassium sulphate, which are highly soluble in water and can be easily obsorbed by plant.
Car batteries contain sulphuric acid which is used as the electrolyte.
Sulphuric acid also used in the making of artificial silk-like fibres and rayon.
Chemical like paints, dyes and drug use sulphuric acid as one of their component materials.
MANUFACTURE OF SULPHURIC ACID
Sulphuric acid is manufactured in industry though
The process contain
Production Of Sulphur Dioxide From Sulphur
i.Combustion of sulphur or sulphide ores in the air produce sulphur dioxide SO
ii.sulphur dioxide is dried and purified.
Production Of Sulphur Trioxide From Sulphur Dioxide
i.The purified sulphur dioxide SO
and excess air are passed over vanadium(V)oxide V
at controlled optimum condition optimum condition to produce sulphur trioxide SO
(g)ii.The optimum used area)Temperature:450-500°C b)Pressure: 2-3 atmospheres3
