    Solid aluminum hydroxide Al(OH)3 (s) reacts with aqueous sulfuric acid H2SO4 (aq) to produce aluminum sulfate Al2(SO4)3 (aq) and water. We combine 30.0g of Al(OH)3 (s) and 75.0 ml of 2.00 M H2SO4 (aq), and the reaction goes to completion. Subsequent analysis reveals that 12.3 g of Al2(SO4)3 was formed. What is the percent yield of aluminum sulfate?
