Yes you will, but it's probably not going to be much use to you.The following equilibria will be established:H2SO4 = HSO4- + H+ = SO42- + 2H+HNO3 = NO3- + H+You'll have a mixture of H2SO4 HSO4- SO42- HNO3 NO3- plus Na+ and H+.As sulphuric acid is stronger than nitric, you'll have less of it.L

to add to that, the link I put there has about 10 replies of people saying its too hard and too expensive to do.

Anhydrous, it is a white crystalline solid of formula Na2SO4 known as the mineral thenardite; the decahydrate Na2SO4·10H2O has been known as Glauber's salt or, historically, sal mirabilis since the 17th century. Other solid is the heptahydrate, which transforms to mirabilite when cooled. With an annual production of 6 million tonnes, it is one of the world's major commodity chemicals and one of the most damaging salts in structure conservation: when it grows in the pores of stones it can achieve high levels of pressure, causing structures to crack.Sodium sulfate is mainly used for the manufacture of detergents and in the Kraft process of paper pulping. About two-thirds of the world's production is from mirabilite, the natural mineral form of the decahydrate, and the remainder from by-products of chemical processes such as hydrochloric acid production.quote from another forum:H2SO4 is not exactly a kitchen project...good luck:http://www.sciencemadness.org/talk/viewthread.php?tid=510
