salam alikum,

"Sulfuric acid is prepared industrially by the reaction of water with sulfur trioxide,"

h2so4 is very useful in organic chemistry, it allows us to make carboxlyic acid, make alkenes from alchohol. also is involded in the production of fertilisers and explosives.

selam,

 

a simplified description of the essential rxns. emphasizing the role of nitrogen oxides, is

S(s) + O2(g)-->SO2(g)

NO(g)+1/2O2(g) -->NO2(g)

NO2(g)+SO2(g)-->SO3(g)+NO(g)

SO3(g)+H2O(l)-->H2SO4(aq)

net: S(s) +3/2O2(g)+H2O(l)-->H2SO4(aq)

 

the use of sulfuric acid in the us is so widespread that the vitality of the economy asa whole can be gauged the quantity of sulfuric acid consumed. sulfuric acid production has been termed a barometer of american economy. sulfuric acid ranks 1st among all manufactured chemicals, w/ an annual production exceeding 40 million tons. principal uses include the mmanufacture of fertilizers %60 and other chemicals %12 the refining of petroleum %6 amd metals %5 and the production of paints and pigments %3 and rayon and cellulose film 3%. (pg 686-687)
