**Normality Example #1**

1 M sulfuric acid (H_{2}SO_{4}) is 2 N for acid-base reactions because each mole of sulfuric acid provides 2 moles of H^{+} ions.

1 M sulfuric acid is 1 N for sulfate precipitation, since 1 mole of sulfuric acid provides 1 mole of sulfate ions.

**Normality Example #2**

36.5 grams of hydrochloric acid (HCl) is a 1 N (one normal) solution of HCl.

A **normal** is one gram equivalent of a solute per liter of solution. Since hydrochloric acid is a strong acid that dissociates completely in water, a 1 N solution of HCl would also be 1 N for H^{+} or Cl^{-} ions for acid-base reactions.
