Expert Answer:

Normality (N) is defined as the number of gram equivalents of solute per liter of solution.
 
 
 
1 M sulfuric acid (H2SO4) is 2 N for acid-base reactions because each mole of sulfuric acid provides 2 moles of H+ ions.
 
36.5 grams of hydrochloric acid (HCl) is a 1 N (one normal) solution of HCl.
