Sulfuric acid is a corrosive product, high viscosity, colorless and with a relative density of 1.85. It has a melting point of 10.36 ° C, a boiling point of 340 ° C and is soluble in water in any proportion. Mixing sulfuric acid with water releases a considerable amount of heat.

The old alchemists prepared it in large quantities by heating sulfates that exist in nature at high temperatures and dissolving in water the sulfur trioxide obtained in this way.

Swirling clouds of sulfuric acid obscure the surface of Venus and impede the study of the planet from Earth until technology allowed to visit it with spacecraft equipped with probes.
