This gives each hydrogen atom two electrons in its outermost energy level. With its first (and only) energy level full, the hydrogen atoms are stable, even though they do not have eight electrons (recall that the first energy level can only hold a maxi- mum of two electrons). In return, the oxygen atom gets to share two electrons. Along with oxygen’s own six valence electrons, this sharing gives the oxygen atom eight electrons on its outermost energy level and also makes it stable. This explains why every water molecule contains two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen.
Instead, for every molecule of sulfuric acid that reacts, there must be two molecules of potassium hydroxide: H2SO4 + 2 KOH ➝ K2SO4 + H2O A number placed in front of a compound in a chemical equation shows the number of molecules of that substance needed for a balanced chemical equation. Now, if the number of atoms of each element on the reactant side is the same as the number of those same elements on the product side of the equation, the equation is balanced: + 2 KOH ➝ K2SO4 + H2O H2SO4 4 hydrogen atoms 2 hydrogen atoms 1 sulfur atom 1 sulfur atom 6 oxygen atoms 5 oxygen atoms 2 potassium atoms 2 potassium atoms The hydrogen and oxygen atoms, however, are still out of balance.
To produce hydrogen gas, for example, the top bowl is removed and a solid— in this case, zinc metal— is placed into the center bowl. The top bowl is then replaced. Hydrochloric acid is poured into the top bowl. 1 Made with three connected glass bowls, Kipp’s apparatus relies on acid-base chem- istry in order to produce gasses—such as carbon dioxide, hydrogen, or hydrogen sulfide—for chemists to use in other chemical reactions. the bottom bowl.
