When a strong acid reacts with a strong base to form a salt and water. This process of formation of salt is known as neutralization because acid and base involved in this reaction neutralize each other. When sulfuric acid reacts with sodium hydroxide, sodium sulfate and water is formed.

H2SO4 ------ > H+1 + SO4-2

NaOH ------ > Na+1 + OH-1

The balanced molecular equation for the neutralization of sodium hydroxide and sulfuric acid is;

H2SO4 + 2NaOH ------ > Na2SO4 + 2H2O

One mole sulfuric acid reacts with two moles of sodium hydroxide to yield one mole of sodium sulfate and two moles of water.
