Reaction rate mixing sulfuric acid with formic acid

Mixing sulfuric acid $\text{H}_2\text{SO}_4$ with formic acid $\text{HCOOH}$ yields the following reaction $\text{H}_2\text{SO}_4 + \text{HCOOH} \rightarrow \text{CO}+\text{H}_2\text{SO}_4 \bullet\text{H}_2\text{O}$ Let’s pretend I have a $2$L solution made up of $96$% sulfuric acid and a $1$L solution made up of $65$% formic acid. If my computations are right, this should yield $960$ml of pure sulfuric acid and […]
