Which of the following substances can be classified as heavy chemicals?
Among the options given, H\(_2\)SO\(_4\) (sulfuric acid) can be classified as a heavy chemical. Heavy chemicals refer to chemicals that are produced in large quantities and are used as raw materials in various industries, such as fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, plastics, and dyes. Sulfuric acid is one of the most widely produced chemicals in the world, and it is used in the production of fertilizers, detergents, and other industrial chemicals. Therefore, H\(_2\)SO\(_4\) can be considered a heavy chemical. CaOCl\(_2\) (calcium hypochlorite), AgNO\(_3\) (silver nitrate), and CaO (calcium oxide) are also chemicals but they are not typically classified as heavy chemicals because they are not produced in the same large quantities as sulfuric acid and are not as widely used as raw materials in various industries.
