I am researching this reaction for my chemistry assessment. Various sources I have dug up state different answers and opinions on what the stoichiometry is and what the products are, sometimes giving no answer at all.
In one source, sulfuric acid is a catalyst that speeds up the reaction while in another source, sulfuric acid is one of the reactants, and is therefore part of the stochiometry. The final products also vary from source to source, and include pure carbon or potassium chloride in addition to carbon dioxide and water.
Can anyone clarify the subject for me?
