    45cm3 of 0.2M sodium hydroxide (NaOH) just reacts with 10cm3 of 0.3M phosphoric acid. Use this data to show that the formula of phosphoric acid is H3PO4?

    For the second one you just calculate the number of moles of phosphoric acid and NaOH
    You will find that there are 3 times LESS moles of phosphoric acid
    This means phosphoric acid must be able to donate 3 protons (have 3 hydrogen atoms)
    This gives you the H3 bit and since PO4 gives a 3- charge then it must be H3PO4
