Sulfuric acid is an acid and aluminum hydroxide is a base. Aluminum hydroxide reacts with sulfuric acid to form salt and water. The salt which is produced during this reaction is known as aluminum sulfate. The hydroxide ion from base combines with proton from acid to yield water. This reaction can also be categorized as double displacement reaction. The net balance equation for the reaction is;

3H2SO4 + 2Al(OH) ------ > Al2(SO4)3 + 6H2O

One mole of aluminum sulfate and six moles of water are produced when three moles of sulfuric acid are combined with two moles of aluminum hydroxide.
