Reaction between iron and sulphuric acid?
If I reacted iron powder with sulphuric acid, (where sulphuric acid is in excess), will all the iron react and dissolve in the solution without any solid remaining?
Also, it would only react with sulphuric acid and not the water in the solution?
Would the reaction be slow?

this depends upon the concentration of sulfuric acid that is used.
Fe + H2SO4 --> FeSO4 + H2
all Fe would react with H2SO4 in excess and the reaction would occur relatively quickly
