What is H₂SO₂ ?Sulfoxylic acid (H2SO2) (also known as hyposulfurous acid or sulfur dihydroxide)) is an unstable oxoacid of sulfur in an intermediate oxidation state between hydrogen sulfide and dithionous acid. It consists of two hydroxy groups attached to a sulfur atom.Created by: Tschuka very hard 32% Nitric acid (III)Nitric acid (III)23Nitrogen (V)Nitrogen (V)32SulfuricSulfuric288Sulfoxylic acidSulfoxylic acid166chemistry riddles » Which acid belongs to the carboxylic acids?Acetic acid (CH3COOH) has a carboxylic group (COOH).

The most important gas which leads to acidification is sulfur dioxide, coming from fossil fuel combustion and industry (and, in lesser amounts, from volcanoes and wildfires). In recent years, emissions of nitrogen oxides which are oxidized to form nitric acid are of increasing importance due to stricter controls on emissions of sulfur containing compounds.

World production of sulfuric acid in 2004 was about 180 million tonnes. About 60% of this amount is consumed for fertilizers, particularly superphosphates, ammonium phosphate and ammonium sulfates. Similarily, 75–80% of the 26M tons of nitric acid produced annually is used to produce ammonium nitrate fertilizer.Created by: Monica Stilleraverage 63% explosives productionexplosives production1661oil refiningoil refining752fertilizers productionfertilizers production6629synthesis of plasticssynthesis of plastics1416chemistry riddles » Which acid is used for the production of explosives?Nitric acid is the primary reagent used for nitration - the addition of a nitro group. Nitration reactions are notably used for the production of explosives, for example synthesis of nitroglycerine, the conversion of guanidine to nitroguanidine and the conversion of toluene to trinitrotoluene (TNT).Created by: globalquiz.orghard 52% sulphuric acidsulphuric acid3168nitric acidnitric acid5911hydrochloric acid hydrochloric acid 725boric acidboric acid1352technology riddles » What is the strongest known acid?Fluoroantimonic acid is an ionic liquid created by reacting hydrogen fluoride with antimony pentafluoride in stoichiometrically equivalent amounts.

Pure water is about 7 at 25 °C; this value decreases with increasing temperatures. At 50 °C, it is 6.55. It is also worth to note, that water that has been exposed to air is mildly acidic, because it absorbs carbon dioxide from the air.Created by: globalquiz.orgvery hard 24% 1.01.09137.07.0247510.010.0253It depends on the temperatureIt depends on the temperature1181water riddles » What is the common name for acetylsalicylic acid?Aspirin has an antiplatelet effect.
