Yes. Sulfuric acid is a strong acid. Phosphoric acid is a weak acid.

Nitric acid is a considerably stronger acid than phosphoric acid.

in my point of view cooper does not react with sulphuric acid unless the sulphuric acid is not diluted. it is because diluted sulphuric acid has tendency to give more h+ ions.

It depends upon nature of acid or base generally Sulphuric acid is more dangerous than bases, but caustic soda (solid sodium hydroxide) is more dangerous than many acids as Hydrochloric acid, acetic acid, phosphoric acid and many other organic acids.

with the help of contact process....u can get more sulhpuric acid

Not at all, but it depends on how dilute the sulphuric acid, but usually no.

2.14, 6.86 and 12.4 - phosphoric acid is a polyprotic acid, meaning that it can dissociate more than one hydrogen ion.

I recently did a experiment for school chemistry and found that lemon juice corroded more that sulphuric acid.

The empirical formula for phosphoric acid is H3PO4. Its molecular formula is P2O5·3H2O. It is composed of the elements hydrogen, phosphorus and oxygen. Most solutions of phosphoric acid are composed of some amount of H3PO4 in water, H2O.For more information about phosphoric acid, see the Web Links to the left.

Phosphoric acid; sprite has none of that in it

Due to large number of hydrogen bonds viscosity and boiling points of sulphuric acid are high

Please add more detail to the question, What is the reaction of magnesium with sulphuric acid.

In Aqueous medium, phosphoric acid emits 3 hydrogen ions. Hydrochloric acid emits only 1 hydrogen ion. So phosphoric acid is more acidic. So it is chosen over HCl.

The formula* for phosphoric acid is H3PO4.*Compounds do not have "symbols" in the chemical sense; only atoms do. The formula itself, of course, is a symbol for the compound itself in a more general meaning of "symbol".

Apple mostly contains the organic acid, L-malic acid. That is not a more destructive acid like phosphoric acid that is found in sodas.

It's chemical full name is dihydrogen phosphite but it is more known as Phosphoric Acid

Because dilute means that it is dissolved in water, and when an acid is dissolved in water, it ionizes, to give H+ and (X-) ions which are more capable of conducting electric current.

Phosphoric acid is used as an acidifying agent to give colas their tangy flavor.Due to the use of phosphoric acid, cola is a actually more acid than lemon juice or vinegar. The vast amount of sugar acts to mask and balance the acidity.Phosphoric acid also goes by E338, orthophosphoric acid, and phosphoric(V) acid.Food-grade phosphoric acid is a mass-produced chemical, available cheaply and in large quantities.Phosphoric acid is commonly used for rust removal.Phosphorus-containing substances occur naturally (0.1%-0.5%) in foods such as milk, meat, poultry, fish, nuts, and egg yolks.According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a consumer watchdog group not affiliated with the food industry, only a small fraction of the phosphate in the American diet comes from additives in soft drinks. Most comes from meat and dairy products. So your reason for not drinking Coke should be its sugar content and artificial food colorings, not the phosphoric acid.

Phosphoric Acid would be the more common name. Hydrogen Phosphate works as well.

Phosphoric Acid removals limescale and other mineral deposits. Used as a daily cleaner it can make the enamel more porous and lead to damage. A daily cleaner should be a germicidal product only.

this means 0.6gm of phosphoric acid in 1000gm of water --------------------------------------- (the previous answer describes a mass percent) It means a 0.6 molal phosphoric acid (i.e. 0.6 mol hydrogen phosphate in 1 kg of water, which is roughly equivalent to 0.6 M phosphoric acid), though molality (mol/kg) is rarely used to denote concentration of acids. More common units are molarity M (mol/L) or normality n (mol/L of hydrogen ion generated).

'You will get copper sulfate and hydrogen gas. Cu(SO4) + H2 ^This answer is incorrect, copper does not react with dilute sulphuric acid, as it does not displace the hydrogen (H2) from Sulphuric acid. This is because Hydrogen is more reactive than copper.

no cuz hcl is corrosive it might relight the fire even more
