how to make acids from using everyday materials
« on: 27/05/2006 18:53:25 »
I am wondering how to make nitric or sulphuric acid from everyday materials. I know you can take sulpuhur and burn it in air to form SO2 which then, as a solid, can be heated again to form SO3 which reacts with water to form H2SO4. I guess i really want to know where to get sulphur from everyday materials.

I'm stumped, if anybody has an idea it would help a lot!:D

Sulfur? Try your nearest plant and gardening store.

Is it possible to make your own sulphur? Minimal spending on my part would be nice.
