How many milliliters of 3.0 M H2SO4 are required to neutralize 3.0 mL of 4.0 M NaOH?

answer: 0.5*((3*4)/1000)*(1000/3)= 20 ml

What volume of 18 M H2SO4 should be used to prepare 300 ml of 6 M H2SO4 solution?

M1V1=M2V2 --> V1= 100 ml


----------------------------------------------------------------------
Can some one please explain the difference between those two question and where did 0.5 come from in the first question.


Thanks.

H2so4 is diprotic whereas Naoh is monoprotic. So you would only need one half of what's calculated if only m1v1=m2v2 is used.
